10 Ways to Lose Your Nursing License

10 Ways to Lose Your Nursing License

NursingLink

8. Hosting a Pornographic Website

Believe it or not – it happens. Just this last year, a nurse in Pennsylvania got her licensed revoked because she was hosting her own pornographic website. This most likely falls under “Unprofessional Conduct,” and it’s easy to chuckle at. But with today’s advancements in technology, and the widespread range of the internet, nurses who use their webcams to do a little work on a side may find themselves without a job.

9. Patient Abuse and Neglect

Sadly, this is quite obvious and, even worse, happens more often than we’d like to admit. Patient neglect and abuse can happen because a nurse is intentionally causing pain and/or suffering, or because of a simple mistake because a nurse is over-worked or has too many patients. One of the most serious offenses, patient neglect and abuses affects more than just the nurse, and even more than just the patient. The patient’s friends and family must also suffer alongside him/her, making this grave offense even worse.

Unfortunately, this happens all too often. Many times, a nurse doesn’t neglect a patient on purpose, but her forgetfulness can cause more damage than imagined and result in the loss of her license.

10. Violating Probation

If you have previous offenses filed with the nursing board, they may place you on probation – this can restrict your practice or your personal habits (such as using alcohol and/or drugs). If you violate the terms of your probation, your license may be revoked. Being placed under probation is a warning in the hopes that a nurse will change his behavior so that he can continue working. However, if that behavior continues, or a nurse willfully goes against the rules their state board has set, she can be punished to the furthest extent of the board.

    Unlike other phone manufacturers, http://www.saveonflyers.com/Sport-Shoes-s826.html air max 2014 It does not fool consumers by hyping mega pixels and making people think that to be a great smartphone you need high mega pixels. That is such a messed up notion of how a smartphone should be. You complain about the iphone not including features on the 3g that should've been on there. nfl jerseys for sale Well Apple is including a lot of those missing features in there for free, so what are you complaining about? And what is strange about the iphone missing several http://www.saveonflyers.com/NHL-Jerseys-c96.html 2014 Olympics Hockey Jersey features. Other phone manufacturers also deliberately exclude features as well and then introduce a new model a couple of months later. san francisco 49ers jerseys Can you give us an example of a phone that has every desired feature that you want? Maybe we're missing something here? Because http://www.saveonflyers.com/Nike-San-Francisco-49ers-Jerseys-s693.html cheap 49ers jerseys right now I cannot comprehend how messed up your logic and mentality isAnd all new computers make it simple to connect these devices with the use of the USB or Universal Serial Bus port. But with the many devices you may have, jerseys you can still run short of these ports.
