Legal Help For Nurses Currently Living In Oregon or Washington
Do you have questions about an issue with the nursing board? Call (503) 232-9280 to schedule a free consultation with a nurses attorney.
Kevin Keaney, who is a nurses attorney, is licensed to practice law in the states of Oregon, Washington, and Texas. Our law firm is based in Portland.
If you are a traveling nurse, based in Oregon, Washington, or Texas, who had a complaint filed against you in another state, you’ll need to contact an attorney in that state to represent you before the state board of nursing. Even if you never intend to return to the state where the complaint was filed, it’s still in your best interest to try to resolve the case as favorably as possible.
Nursing board sanctions from other states are recorded in a national database. And the Oregon State Board (OSBN) and Washington Nursing Commission (NCQAC) can follow through with additional punishment and/or restrictions on your license.
If you live and work in Oregon, Washington, or Texas, we can help you defend your nursing license, representing you before the Oregon board, Washington board, or Texas board.
Depending on the initial allegation and investigation, disciplinary sanctions could range from a dismissal of the complaint to revocation of your nursing license. A dismissal and a letter of concern don’t become public record, but a letter or reprimand, probation, license suspension, and license revocation all will be entered into a national database and can follow you through your nursing career.
For information about defending your nursing license, or to schedule a free legal consultation, please call (503) 232-9280, or e-mail . You can also browse our FAQ page for answers to common questions we’re received.
