I met with a nurse last week who was upset about her Nursing Board case. Her license has been permanently revoked. She retained an attorney who told her he understood nursing issues when in fact this was the attorney's first Nursing Board matter.
The nurse remarked that she didn't learn much about legal issues in nursing school.
What about you? Did you receive a well-rounded education in nursing school about the law, legalities, and legal issues in nursing?
I remember a catch all ethics course that included a discussion on the Nurse Practice Act.
