Nursing license complaint, revocation and reinstatement

Having a complaint filed against your nursing license should never be taken lightly. The Boards of Nursing are like mini governments within themselves. They write the rules of accountability for nurses and the rules of unaccountability for themselves. They don't abide by Federal or State laws, at least not the one in Oklahoma.
It all begins with information given to them usually by an employer, who has more fault then the nurse and needs to shift any blame directly on her the low man on the totem pole. They in turn will send you a letter stating they have received information regarding your nursing practice they would like to discuss with you. Even if the information is protected somehow by federal laws supposedly, they will take it as given in 'good faith' when in reality it is a crime in itself.
They will build a case against you to insurmountable to overcome. They will make and file a complaint with themselves against you, they will hold a trial with their lawyer(s), their jury and their judges. (Get the picture yet?) They alone determine the outcome.
The Boards of Nursing were created because the court system felt in was incapable of determining the nurses accoutability. It's hard to believe no court system outside of the Board of Nursing is capable of being intelligent enough to determine that nurses are being retaliated against by employers through the Board of Nursing who in return basically destroy so many nursing careers in the guise of protecting the public from incompetent individuals with college degrees.
Then after their trial and persecution, comes further retaliation this time by the Board. They themselves will send information to the Federal agency of Health and Human Services who will write to you regarding there ability to make obtaining any employment in any capacity janitorial, aide, secretary with any employer involved in medicare or medicaid anywhere in the United States totally impossible. So the knowledge and education you do have will become useless to you when trying to find any kind of job. You can of course appeal if you like.
It's retaliation and devastation to the core of the nurses existence that occurrs over a 2 year period of time. They take the time to make sure you know who is in charge of your life, security and stability. They will destroy the nurse on as many levels as possible.
They will make reinstatement of their license unrealistic and if you try to fight for your license in any capacity they will go as far as possible to make living life as impossible for the individual as they can.
Why don't they help nurses? They're to busy destroying them!
