Full course description
Understand nursing disciplinary actions before there’s a problem
Of all the complaints against nurses that go to state boards of nursing, between one quarter and one half result in disciplinary action. Even if your overall performance is above reproach, a small oversight could lead to a daunting disciplinary action, especially if you underestimate or ignore the complaint.
Disciplinary Actions: What Every Nurse Should Know will help you proactively protect your nurse license by identifying potential problems. If you receive a disciplinary warning, you’ll know how to react appropriately in order to decrease your risk of nursing license suspension.
