Kane County Nursing License Defense Lawyer

Kane County Nursing License Defense Lawyer

Nurses are exceptionally essential employees in the United States, and this has never been more clear than during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. Many people want to dedicate their lives to caring for others, and entering the healthcare system as a nurse can be a fulfilling and rewarding way to do so. 

Not just anyone can start work as a nurse, however. Like every state, Illinois has strict guidelines for completing courses of education and passing examinations before you can become a nurse. Additionally, you must be granted a nursing license from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) before you begin practicing nursing. 

Many issues can arise with the IDFPR when it comes to your nursing license. If your application was denied or you might have your current license suspended or revoked, you need the help of a Kane County nursing license defense lawyer from 1818 – An Advocacy Group right away.

Obtaining Your Nursing License

The IDFPR is in charge of granting and overseeing many types of nursing licenses, including:

  • Registered Professional Nurse (RN)
  • Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)
  • Advanced Practice Nurse (APN)
  • Advanced Practice Registered Nurse- Full Practice Authority (APRN-FPA)
  • APN Controlled Substance
  • APRN – FPA Controlled Substance
  • RN CE Sponsor
  • LPN CE Sponsor
  • APN CE Sponsor

Licensure requires completion of educational programs, passing scores on exams, and a successful application with IDFPR. The department will review your application and background and determine whether you are suitable for a nursing license. In some cases, they might determine that issues arising in your background check should lead to a licensure denial. If this happens, you want the right legal assistance to appeal the denial.

IDFPR Investigations and Adverse Action

The IDFPR keeps track of those who have nursing licenses, and certain complaints or issues might trigger an investigation into your licensure. Some reasons why a nursing license might be in jeopardy include:

  • Employer or patient complaints
  • Violation of administrative rules and regulations
  • Substance abuse or mental illness
  • Distributing medication or other equipment without permission
  • Neglect or mistreatment of patients
  • Failing to complete continuing education requirements

If you learn that you are under IDFPR investigation, your very first call should be to our license defense attorney. It is important to handle this process properly to protect your ability to continue your nursing career. 

If your license is called into question, you need legal representation right away. Our law firm can review the allegations against you and defend your license. We will represent you in informal sessions and formal hearings, and our goal is to keep you in your chosen profession of nursing whenever possible. If your license has already been suspended, you should discuss your options for possible reinstatement with our firm.
