He knows the law.

Because of his legal experience and relationship with the BRN (Board of Registered Nursing), he was able to negotiate a public reproval and avoid a court hearing and probation. I am so grateful and relieved. I would definitely recommend him.

Paul Chan is great

at what he does and I would recommend him to anyone being faced with accusations and charges from their Board. Paul is honest, hard working, and fair. He understands the process as well as has established relationships with the attorney's and people that make up the BRN.

Skilled Representation Before the Board of Registered Nursing

The California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) is the agency that oversees the practice of nursing in California. The BRN operates under the umbrella of the Department of Consumer Affairs, which is the agency that licenses and regulates RNs. The BRN enforces and regulates nurses under the Nursing Practice Act. Most of the complaints that nurses face involve allegations of gross negligence while caring for a patient, a misdemeanor or felony criminal conviction, drug or alcohol abuse, or diversion of controlled substances.

Complaints against a nurse may be filed by a patient, family members, co-workers or employers. If a nurse is terminated with cause, the employer is required to report the termination to the BRN. Once a complaint is made, the case will be investigated. If a nurse is convicted of a crime, such as drunk driving, the conviction will be reported to the BRN and a disciplinary action will be triggered. Any criminal conviction involving the use or possession of drugs and alcohol is considered to be a violation of the Nursing Practice Act.

A criminal conviction does not automatically result in the revocation of a nursing license. Hiring the right professional license defense attorney can help you save your license. I have had past successes resolving drunk driving convictions with a citation and a fine, a letter of public reprimand, or probation, which can allow you to continue working as a nurse.

Petitions for Reinstatement

The BRN allows any individual who has had his or her nursing license revoked to petition for reinstatements. I have successfully represented numerous nurses in this process. If you have had your nursing license revoked or if you have surrendered your license, I may be able to help you get it back.
