Frequently Asked Questions

Criminal convictions can lead to disciplinary actions that include a reprimand, monitoring agreements, probation, suspension, or revocation of your nursing license. If handled early and properly, disciplinary measures can be avoided.
Crimes we typically see involve drugs or alcohol, domestic violence and dishonesty. However, there are many other types of crimes that can affect a nurse’s license that are more egregious than these, such as harm to a patient, drug trafficking, and elder abuse. Of course, felonies are scrutinized more seriously than misdemeanors.

Reach out to a legal professional like LV Nurse Attorney to understand how the conviction may impact your license and what actions you can take.

We also offer representation of nurses charged with a crime on select cases, and can assist you with the sealing of your criminal records where legally permitted, such as arrest records where no criminal charges were brought or where they were dismissed without a conviction.

It depends. Usually, nurses are always required to report criminal convictions to their licensing board. Failure to report can result in additional disciplinary actions. However, past crimes that have been properly expunged or records sealed may not need to be reported, or presentence pleas that are dismissed before convictions may not be reported. It is extremely important to contact LV Nurse Attorney to have the specific facts of your case evaluated so that you can handle the matter in a proper, legal way with the least amount of impact on you license and your career.

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
