Although we'd like to believe that every nurse is a good person with good intentions, we can't ignore the fact that every year, state nursing boards revoke or suspend dozens of licenses. Be Sure to regularly familiarize yourself with your state's laws and procedures. Most common reasons that nursing licenses are being suspended or revoked are:

  • Substance abuse
  •  Violating the terms of recovering nurse program
  • Practicing without a valid license
  • Failure to administer medications or treatments responsibly
  • Criminal convictions
  • Falsification of information
  • Documentation errors
  • Diversion of drugs
  • Mental Incompetence
  • Incompetence due to negligence
  • Professional misconduct
  • Fraud and deceit
  • Impersonating another licensed professional
  • Patient abuse
  • Violating existing probation
