Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about nursing license defense and the OSBN.

Should I Be Concerned If I Receive A Letter From The OSBN?
Yes. Even if you don’t believe that there’s any merit to the complaint filed against you with the OSBN, depending on the investigation and resolution, the complaint can have a serious impact on your nursing career.

Will A Restriction On My Oregon Nursing License Impact My Ability To Practice In Another State?
Yes. If you apply for a nursing license in another state, you’ll be required to disclose any prior restrictions on your license. There’s also a National Nursing Database that compiles data from all of the state boards of nursing.

Do I Need A Lawyer?
While you may be able to handle the situation on your own, you certainly could benefit from having an experienced nurses attorney. In the free consultation, we can talk about your specific situation and how we can help.  Having a lawyer by your side can be a career-saving move in many cases.

If OSBN Is In The Middle Of Their Investigation, Can You Still Help Me?
Yes. We can help you at any point.
