State nursing boards have been notifying nurses of disciplinary hearings over their school credentials, since in early 2023 the FBI's Operation Nightingale charged more than two dozen Florida nursing school officials with selling fake credentials. If you face a state licensing board hearing over the legitimacy of your nursing school credentials, then you need to do these four things.
1. Retain Premier Professional License Defense Counsel
First, you need the skilled and experienced professional license defense representation to fight the disciplinary charges. Don't retain an unqualified local criminal defense attorney. Instead, retain the Lento Law Firm's premier Professional License Defense Team and national license defense attorney Joseph D. Lento for the skills and experience you need for your best outcome to nursing credentials issues. And don't delay. Every hour of every day between now and your licensing hearing may be critical. Call 888.535.3686 or go online now.
2. Trust in the Effort You Put into Nursing Schooling
Operation Nightingale alleged that thousands of nurses had paid for nursing instruction, not received the instruction, but still got the course credit or nursing degree. The involved Florida nursing schools generally offered a mix of on-site and online instruction. Those schools, all accredited before their closure in the scandal, had offered credible, legitimate instruction to hundreds of even thousands of nurses over several years. If you attended one of those schools, your instruction may have been perfectly legitimate. Trust and believe in your effort.
3. Save Everything Relating to Your Nursing Schooling
While you trust and believe in your school effort, you now have to prove it. Your school syllabi, assignments, course materials, class notes, emails, texts, files, and electronic devices may all help you prove your instruction's legitimacy. Save everything. Don't delete emails, messages, or files. Don't discard computers or other devices. Collect everything to prepare to turn over to your attorney.
4. Cooperate with Your Retained Counsel
As soon as you retain a skilled and experienced professional license defense team, follow their instructions. They may ask you to copy and forward the above documents and files to them or to turn them over to a document service. If so, then do so promptly. They may have you execute authorizations to obtain academic, employment, financial, or other records. If so, then sign and return those authorizations immediately so that they can get the records they need for your hearing. They may have you contact school officials, your employer's representatives, or others. If so, then do so immediately, following their instructions. Answer their every telephone call, email, or text message promptly. Open every piece of their mail promptly, read the mail, and do as they instruct. Your cooperation with counsel will be critical to your hearing defense.
