How embarrassing to my profession. This is unheard of and I support the Oklahoma State Nursing Board's decision to remove her license. She is not fit to protect the public or her patients when they are vulnerable. The disrespect for the wife's marriage is apalling.
I'm sure the former RN will find other work more in line with her desires to preform more nonprofessional work.

The patient was most likely on a prescribed mind drug that was the primary cause for the suicide. The death rate by prescribed mind medication has a large history.

Removing the woman from her profession is wrong. She was on her own time and the nature of feelings toward one another are a human-right that can't be dictated by policy. She wasn't disloyal to the profession.

The Republican "Medical Privacy Act" of 2004 has long been a thorn in the side of American justice in that it hides and conceals defective products and medical wrong doing from the public and the press to shield the medical/ Pharmacutical industries from liability or public knowledge of the defective product.

*Violence, Deaths Murders and Suicides from mind drugs.

Not only do I know this Nurse personally, but I went to nursing school with her. The OK board of nursing is too high and mighty in the decision to make private matters public. This situation has been over inflated to make Her look like a monster, and how nice that...details have been left out of the story.... shame on people for judging....
