California Registered Nursing License Attorney
Among the most valued members in the medical world are registered nurses, comprising the largest segment of health care workers. If you are a registered nurse, we know your type of nursing has been taking on larger and larger roles in health care over the past few decades, placing you in a high-demand position.
Your work in promoting good health and preventing illness by educating patients and the public about a host of medical conditions, treating the sick and the injured and aiding in their rehabilitation is an important one. As a RN you are a guardian of the sick and injured. You also provide advice and emotional support to patients’ families as well, keeping them in the coveted role of ‘angels of mercy’ when illness or injury strikes

Whether we find you in critical-care and intensive care units, emergency rooms, psychiatric wards, clinics, rehabilitation centers, doctors’ offices or home health care settings, your role is ever-expanding. Some of you visit schools and elder care homes and your knowledge can lead you to specialized settings as well, such as pediatric oncology or as surgical assistants under the direction of physicians. Others act as nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, Certified Nurse-Midwives, and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, to name just a few paths your careers may take.
As you know, nurse practitioners, unlike general duty nurses, have in recent decades become primary caregivers. Arguments have been made that the current U.S. health care system needs many more nurse practitioners and fewer physicians, since these specialists perform many of the duties of their better-paid brethren at a lowered cost.
As you also know, nursing programs are highly competitive in California and applicants can wait for several years before being accepted. But most who achieve entry believe it to be worth it, citing their careers as extremely satisfying. Licensing is accomplished through the California Board of Registered Nursing. Because registered nurses are the primary point of contact between the patient and the world of health care at clinical, hospital or in outpatient settings, the quality of nursing practice and performance can be deemed subjective in nature by many consumers. Whether accusations are made due to a purported human error or because of the emotion surrounding injury or illness, registered nurses’ licenses can be challenged for a variety of reasons and motives.
