A variety of issues can put your health care license in jeopardy

Perhaps all you have ever wanted to do is help people. You figured out that the best way for you to do that is to work in the health care field. After spending a significant amount of time, money and effort getting the education you needed, working as an intern and going through your boards, the last thing you want is to put your hard-earned license in jeopardy.

Tips to alleviate stress in a licensing board hearing

As a licensed professional in Pennsylvania, you likely recall how hard you studied and worked to earn your license. Whether that was more than 10 years ago or just took place within the past couple months, if an obstacle arises that calls your professionalism into question, you may worry about the future of your career. One of the most stressful experiences a doctor, nurse or other licensed professional can have is to be summoned to a licensing board hearing.  

Prescription drugs associated with medical licensing problems

Life as a Pennsylvania doctor or nurse can be stressful. In addition to staying updated on current medical data and regulations regarding patient care, being a medical professional can pose personal challenges as well. Family life often bears the strain of mothers or fathers who must work long hours away from home, thus causing various relationship issues. Some medical workers also face serious problems concerning prescription drugs and substance abuse. In fact, misusing prescription drugs can lead to serious medical licensing problems. 

Licensing board investigating nurse's situation

Many Pennsylvania nurses have access to controlled substances during the normal course of their work duties. A nurse in another state is currently the subject of a licensing board proceeding and criminal investigation regarding accusations against her that she harmed her patients. Two key factors are central focuses of her situation: She is said to have inappropriately handled drugs on the job and also that she tried to infect her patients with Hepatitis C.
