My Nursing License Has Been Revoked; Can It Be Reinstated?

It’s a situation that has many licensed professionals stressed and filled with anxiety – when something you have done or failed to do, led to the suspension or revocation of your professional license.

The team at Unlock Legal has worked on behalf of suspended nurses to get their nursing license reinstated faster.  We’ve also helped nursing students who have prior convictions secure a license when a board told them that it wouldn’t be possible.

Why Do Nursing Licenses Get Revoked?

The nursing board can revoke a nurse’s license for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common reasons include DUI convictions, improper patient care practices, and gross negligence, such as administering medications without a valid order and breaching patient confidentiality. Fortunately, by taking the proper course of action, nursing licenses can be reinstated.  But there is an immediacy that most licensed nurses fail to understand completely.

 How Can I Get My Nursing License Back?

To have your Registered Nursing license reinstated, you must petition the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN). This process involves the completion of several documents and the submission of supporting evidence of your rehabilitation in preparation for a board hearing.   You could take this arduous process on by yourself.   However, if you are looking for a swift and favorable outcome, you should retain an experienced licensing attorney.  Understand that the board will review your case to assess whether reinstatement of your license will be safe for consumers, and the entire burden of proof is on you.
