Nursing Board Defense

Defending Your South Carolina Nursing License

Receiving a call or letter from an LLR nursing board investigator to report that your license is under investigation is overwhelming, even if you anticipate the investigation. You are not alone.  Our team  has handled hundreds of LLR related matters and we will defend your South Carolina nursing license through the administrative process.

Nursing board complaints arise from a number of sources including a report from the employer or a co-worker, a self-report, even a report from DHEC or law enforcement following an arrest, such as a DUI.  Regardless of the source of the complaint, the process is still the same.

Hiring a Nursing Board Defense Attorney

It is extremely important to understand that being under investigation does not mean that you have actually violated the Nurse Practice Act. If you have been contacted by an LLR investigator, and are under investigation with the South Carolina Board of Nursing, we strongly suggest that you consider retaining a nursing board defense attorney.  

Defending a South Carolina Nursing Board complaint begins at the investigative stage. You have the right to retain an attorney to represent you, request a review of the evidence, and advocate on your behalf. Although each case is unique, this step can be invaluable to your defense.  This is critical given the changes and uncertainty under the new Enhanced Nurse Licensure  Compact.  If your assigned investigator has directed you to report to RPP, our licensing team will help guide you through the process. 

Experience Matters

We are familiar with the process, routinely work with the assigned investigators and attorneys, and frequently appear before the Nursing Panel and South Carolina Nursing Board.

The Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact Changes are set to become effective January 18, 2018, making it even more important that you understand the nature of the allegations against you, as well as, the implications of possible disciplinary action.  Contact attorney Robyn Madden directly today for more information about these changes, how they may impact your nursing practice, and defense of your nursing license.

We routinely prepare clients under investigation with the South Carolina Board of Nursing to meet with the investigator, review available evidence, and provide a statement on the client’s behalf. Although the Board of Nursing must prove that you violated the Nurse Practice Act in order to impose disciplinary action, we firmly believe that actively participating in the investigative process and raising questions about the evidence presented can ultimately impact the disposition of your case.

Our team is here to protect your right to continued practice through the LLR administrative process. Our professional licensing attorneys also routinely provide assistance to nurses referred to the Recovering Professional Program.
