Representing All Nursing Professionals

There is a wide scope to the practice of nursing. We understand the different types of nursing licenses, and the nuances of your specialized license or field of nursing. The Georgia Board of Nursing oversees licensure and regulates the field. It grants licenses, monitors professionals' actions, investigates complaints and imposes discipline for violations.

This is a broad overview of a complex field. We work with nurses of all specializations in any action taken against their livelihood or professional license. The attorneys at Frances Cullen, P.C., represent:

  • Registered nurses (RN)
  • Advanced practice registered nurses (APRN)
  • Licensed practical nurses (LPN)
  • Nurse midwives
  • Certified registered nurse anesthetists (CNA)
  • Clinical nurse specialists

Our office is in Atlanta, and we work with nursing professionals in Fulton County and throughout Georgia and the southeast.

Potential Nursing Violations

Complaints can be filed by anyone. Georgia law requires that employers report to the board the termination of an employee for any violation of office or hospital policy. Most often, complaints are filed by a former employer, a current or former patient or a patient's family member. The types of complaints most often filed include:

  • Alcohol and/or drug dependence or abuse
  • Inadequate medical record keeping
  • Failing to follow proper drug dispensing procedures
  • Failing to adequately chart the administration of drugs
  • Discipline imposed in another state
  • Arrests and criminal convictions
  • Falsification of Georgia Board of Nursing application or renewal forms
  • Practice below the standard of care
  • Failing to renew a license, failure to complete continuing competency requirements or issues with the reinstatement of a license

If you are terminated from your job, your employer is required by law to file a complaint with the Georgia Board of Nursing. Be prepared before the board contacts you.

When a complaint is filed, the Georgia Board of Nursing opens a case file. You may be contacted by a board investigator and asked to make a statement. At this point, it is important to hire an experienced lawyer. Our attorneys have worked with nurses and nurse practitioners for more than 20 years.
