Eli Stutsman is a nursing board attorney, usually called a “licensure attorney,” with experience defending nursing licenses before the Oregon Board of Nursing (OSBN) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
If you are a certified nursing assistant (CNA), licensed practical nurse (LPN), registered nurse (RN), or Nurse Practitioner (NP), and your license, or DEA Registration (if you are a prescribing nurse), is under investigation, I encourage you to retain a nursing board attorney immediately. An investigation involving your nursing license or DEA Registration is a legal process driven by administrative law, and your ability to practice your profession is at stake. If there is evidence of a valid complaint, a nurse investigator will expect to meet with you in person, usually a tape-recorded interview. If there are grounds for discipline, you are subject to a range of sanctions. Your best strategy when defending your nursing license or DEA Registration is to participate in the investigation from the onset, and you will need a competent nursing board attorney to take advantage of the opportunities and to avoid the many common mistakes.
