Tips for protecting your nursing license

Working as a nurse comes with a lot of reward but it also comes with a lot of stress. There's no telling when a patient or co-worker might file a complaint against you. The complaints could be meritless and dismissed. They could also put your license, and your nursing career, in serious jeopardy. Here's how to protect your nursing license in California.

One of the most important things you can do to protect your nursing license is act professional. It's understandable that you aren't on the clock 24/7, but people's perceptions of you will change if they see you acting a certain way out of work while wearing your scrubs. This also goes for social media and how you interact online.

If you are given an order by a supervisor but are leery of it, be sure to ask around if it is something that should be done. Never do anything blindly that you believe will harm a patient or your career. There's no harm in asking around for more clarification, especially if the order was not specific or clear in its instructions.

If a complaint is filed against you with the licensing board, be sure to consult with an attorney who has experience defending these cases for nurses and others who hold professional licenses. The attorney will be able to answer all of your questions, work with investigators to find answers and prepare you for a litany of questions.
