A: A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but you await a response for two weeks and time is likely of the essence. It's probably a narrow area of practice, but she could search for professional license defense attorneys or nursing license defense attorneys. She could look to see what general information there is for the public on the website of the Pennsylvania Department of State - State Board of Nursing to make the most out her consultation. Good luck
