If you decide to hire us, we advise the NSBN of our representation, obtain a copy of the complainant’s complain (if there is one), go over the allegations in detail, help you prepare a reply where appropriate, prepare letters, motions and requests for evidence where appropriate, attempt to negotiate your case with Board staff, and when necessary, represent you at either a contested or uncontested hearing before the Board at a public hearing.

LV Nurse Attorney does not believe you should report false allegations of professional misconduct to the Board. For further legal advice and counsel, contact LV Nurse Attorney to discuss your particular situation.
In our experience, the NSBN will investigate nearly every complaint that, on its face, appears to suggest unprofessional conduct that could lead to discipline–even complaints that are filed anonymously. You will receive a notice of complaint/investigation from one of the Board’s experienced investigators, and be asked to respond in writing within two weeks from the date of receipt of the letter. LV Nurse Attorney strongly urges you to seek a free consultation before responding; in fact, the letter will advise you that you have the right to seek legal counsel.
Having handled hundreds of nursing cases for over more than 12 years, we suggest you do the following: (1) understand thoroughly standard nursing practices and abide by them, in spite of peer pressure or poor enforcement at any job to cut corners; (2) regularly review those professional standards and adhere to them; (3) know the additional standards your employer may require in addition to generally accepted professional standards and follow them; maintain professional relationships with patients and colleagues; and (4) engage in ongoing professional development the by taking relevant CE courses that train and update you on current standards.
Outcomes include closure or dismissal of a complaint, a fine, a public reprimand, suspension of a license with probation (restricted license), suspension of a license without probation, revocation of a license, voluntary surrender of a license, refusal to renew or grant license, and anything else the Board deems appropriate under the circumstances.

What our Clients Say

I needed an attorney to handle my nursing endorsement application with the Nevada State Board of Nursing, which I had a previous criminal conviction. With his knowledge and expertise, I was able to get my license unencumbered with no restrictions.
I am very fortunate that I found Atty Craig Perry to represent me to the Board of Nursing. He fought for me till the end and it was the best feeling when I heard from him that our battle was over with good news

Mr. Perry and his team came through for me when I desperately needed help to fight and to save my nurses license, and he didn't do it just to take on another case. He really believed in me which is what a person needs when you are going up against the nursing board
