Attorneys for Nurses
Nurses, of all professions, should get this comparison: just like there are specialists in medicine, there are specialists in law and there are attorneys who have dedicated their entire practices to defending registered nurses. Some attorneys are so specialized that they’ve narrowed their focus to defending RNs from the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN).
Just like you would choose a gastroenterologist over your PCP if you had narrowed your illness down to a gastrointestinal issue, nurses choose attorneys who specialize in the defense of RN licenses from adverse action by the BRN over, say – the guy who did their estate plan.
WHAT TYPE OF ATTORNEY FOR NURSES SHOULD I BE LOOKING FOR?
Attorneys who focus on RN license defense are laser focused specialists in administrative law. Admin law covers a very broad range of legal matters and professional license defense is just one of those areas; there are only 32 professional licensing boards under the Department of Consumer Affairs. Drill down even farther to attorneys representing only medical professionals and then there are a tiny handful of attorneys in California whose sole focus is defending nurses and nurses alone.
ARE THERE EXPERT ATTORNEYS FOR MY SPECIFIC LEGAL ISSUE WITH THE BRN?
RN Guardian’s panel attorneys for nurses are focused on RNs and LVNs and that is it. Each of those 32 professional licensing boards have their own set of rules and regulations, recommended guidelines and disciplinary requirements. Each of the medical boards differ greatly, what works for a physician or PA will not work for a RN or a LNV and the LVN and RN boards differ dramatically. This is important to understand because most license defense attorneys represent all 32 licenses or some even specialize in medical licenses. However, I believe that RN Guardian is the only legal company in Californian that focuses only on defending nurses and keeping them licensed and working in their chosen career. Because of this, our clients receive the best possible representation from our small, vetted team of expert panel attorneys.
If we go back to the medical analogy, let’s say that you have Celiac Disease. Let’s say that you know you should see the gastroenterologist, but you may also search for a doctor who specializes specifically in treating Celiacs. That doctor will have devoted his entire medical research to your very, very specific malaise. You will probably receive good care from the gastroenterologist, but you will know emphatically that you are getting the best care and most up-to-date treatment from the Celiac specialist because that is all he does.
IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT YOUR LICENSE- FIND AN ATTORNEY WHO IS TOO.
Nurses have a great deal on the line when they are being faced with adverse action against their RN licenses from the BRN. Losing a career or having a career curtailed can be just as life altering to a RN as a debilitating illness. If you are a registered nurse and you are serious about saving your RN license and your career, please give us a call. We’ve made it OUR career to defend yours.
