Gretna, LA asked in Gov & Administrative Law for Louisiana

Q: Should I sign a nursing reprimand if the administrative code is outdated and does not match the current 2023 update?

I had an arrest expunged, 2020 and graduated from lpn program in 2023, the arrest was not disclosed on the lpn application but was disclosed on the RN application that I was attending prior too. The board is now accusing me of fraud. I recieved an administrative code from 2020 stating I have committed a violation of the nursing practice act but it was update in 2023 of this year and one of the codes on the form,I don't agree with. Should I sign or request am appeal to plead my case an ask for a private reprimand and lesser fine.

A: While seeking information and guidance from this Board is good, yoou really should seek and consult with an attorney who handles Board work for the practitioner, and especially one who does this regularly in front of the nursing board---someone like that will have a better insight into what the Board is inclined to do in situations such as yours. Good luck.
