Several nurses have reported going through a bad experience with the board of nursing in another forum on this site where clearly there seems to have been an abuse of power. I am interested to know who has had a bad experience in LA with our BON?

Please write in if you have been wrongfully treated by the Louisiana State Board of Nursing. I would like to help nurses in the quest for fair treatment by our boards of nursing. Thanks
Anyone who wishes to tell their story more privately may email me at lynnT6904@gmail.com

What are you talking about?

I'm a nurse and I speak for all when i say that we only deal with the Board of Nursing to renew license. Now unless you are charged with a serious crime...then you really have to deal with them.

Hi Landry! First I want to say that your statement reflects what we all thought was the position of our boards of nursing. If you haven't been reported for anything then you would not understand the delimma faced by these nurses. There are several cases,(not serious) or even not true in a lot of cases, where the nurse was accused and was unable to defend themselves or coerced by the BON into some kind of program to keep their licenses which in turn boils down to a money making thing for the BONs, but it completely ruins the working career and life of the nurse. You should read some of the posts on here and you will see what I am refering to. The BONs are under administrative law and they are a quasi governmental agency although they recieve little or no funding from the government giving them an incentive to induce fines on a nurse whenever possible. Even though no funding recieved by the government they are protected by the law, and able to be the judge, jury and the executer. These nurses that have fallen into their hands that were not guilty of any crime, have learned the hard way that they will not be able to defend themselves at all. So be thankful that you haven't had to face anything like this. But I will say this has become a mission for all who were affected to try to change some laws about the investigative process or administrative law. That's what we are all trying to do to protect other nurses who might end up going through all this.

Ignorance is bliss my friend, many many many of the accusations in front of the BON have nothing to do with drugs or alcohol. Maybe you should actually investigate what you are talking about before you make such judgmental statements. Honey you can have your license under attack if you write a bad check or get into a domestic fight with a spouse. I find your lack of compassion and ignorance typical to the "bully self rightous, holier than thou" nurses I met during my entire career as a nurse. Thanks for reminding me what I do NOT miss about this profession. I hope you can live the perfect life without complications in any area of your life because you would be shocked what the BON makes it business. Your lack of compassion and information makes you a good target for a karmatic experience.

I beg to differ in opinion from you, Fallin from Grace. As you can see from the postings on this site http://www.lsbn.state.la.us/Discipline%2CComp... , the majority of the nurses receiving disciplinary action by the Louisiana State Board of Nursing involve drugs and/or alcohol.

granted this is for fiscal year 2005, but that year enforcement actions accounted for maybe 5% of revenue. http://app1.lla.state.la.us/PublicReports.nsf... $FILE/00000F86.pdf

upon renewal, does the board do background checks? I know a trainwreck RN in Ohio who has 2 duis in 2012, 4 months apart, second one .24 and serious injury accident, open containers-what bothers me is arrogance and no remorse, assuming it is same as "speeding tickets". won't board know about these crimes, as she plead guilty.

if it is administrative, then it is not final, you have a right to contest the make up of the board and their qualifications, if that is all ok you still have the right to take your issues up in the state court system, like other have stated unless you have done something seriously wrong it is doubtfull that they can do too much politicking under such a system we are trying to remand the trafic ticket system back to this which is where it should be as that has indeed corrupted the state and city court systems into being a collecdion agency for governemnt which it is not allowed to be and for the judges to become corrupt out of necessity

This does not include many complaints from disgruntled people who don't sign complaints
