Becoming a licensed nurse is certainly not an easy task. Not only must prospective nurses obtain the necessary education but they must also pass a state-administered examination and demonstrate that they are of “good moral character” before they will be permitted to legally practice nursing within the state.
Given the long - and often arduous - process of becoming a fully licensed nurse, it is no wonder why nurses take such pride in their jobs. Indeed, for many, nursing is not only a profession but also a calling.
However, nurses need to remember that even after all of their hard work in obtaining their licenses is complete, the New York State Board of Nursing may consider revoking such licensure for several reasons.
However, it is important to keep in mind that these are merely a few of the possible reasons that a nurse may lose his or her license. In fact, there are several additional state laws and regulations that govern nursing licensure in New York, nurses need to be aware of if ever accused of wrongdoing that puts his or her license at risk.
Ultimately, if accused of wrongdoing, a nurse needs to ensure he or she does everything possible to protect him or herself. After all, the loss of a nursing license not only means an individual may lose his or her job but also his or her career.
