Letter of Concern for Nurses
Do you need to consult with an attorney regarding your nursing license or other professional licensing matter? Call (530) 232-9280 to schedule a free consultation with a nurse’s attorney.
If the OSBN finds that a nursing violation has been committed, but that the violation was not egregious or the OSBN can’t prove the violation, it may issue a “letter of concern” to the nurse.
A letter of concern from the OSBN is not a disciplinary action, and therefore is not a matter of public record.
However, while it might seem like a letter of concern isn’t a big deal, it truly can cast a shadow on your nursing career. A letter of concern establishes a “history” with the OSBN. If you were to get a second allegation filed against you, the OSBN might take the letter of concern into consideration when deciding on disciplinary sanctions.
Letters of concern can be issued for many nursing violations, including:
•lying or falsifying documents
•expired nursing license
•failure to complete continuing education
