OUT OF STATE LICENSE DISCIPLINE & CONSEQUENCES
OUT OF STATE LICENSE DISCIPLINE & CALIFORNIA MEDICAL BOARD, NURSING BOARD AND OTHER CALIFORNIA HEALTH CARE LICENSE CONSEQUENCES
Many California physicians including those licensed by the CA Medical Board, CA Osteopathic Medical Board, CA Board of Podiatry, as well as registered nurses and other health care professionals possess professional licenses in not only California but other states as well. If an out of state license is disciplined including suspended, revoked, placed on probation, or surrendered in lieu of revocation, this likely will have consequences on the licensee’s California medical or nursing license. It is possible that such discipline by another state must be reported to the CA Board within a certain period of time. It is also possible that such out of state license discipline will need to be disclosed on a renewal application for the CA Medical Board or CA Registered Nursing Board license.
At this point the CA medical doctor, osteopathic medical doctor, podiatrist or registered nurse should obtain the services of a CA administrative law/license defense attorney like Jonathan Turner who specializes in Medical Board and Registered Nursing Board enforcement and disciplinary cases.
Once the CA Board is notified of the out of state discipline, an investigation by the CA Board will ensue. This may include the issuance of a formal Accusation seeking formal discipline of the doctor’s or nurse’s California license.
Likewise, if you are an out of state physician or nurse applying for a CA medical or nursing license for the first time, and you have suffered professional license discipline in a state other than California, you should immediately contact health care professional license defense attorney Jonathan Turner based in Sacramento, California. Such out of state discipline, including denial of a license or a public reproval or reprimand, will likely need to be disclosed on the CA licensing application.
Thus, it is important that the nurse or doctor applying for licensure in California for the first time consult with a CA medical and nursing license defense lawyer. It is possible that disclosure of license discipline in another state may lead to the CA Medical Board, CA Registered Nursing Board, etc… initially denying the license application. Fortunately, the applicant can request an administrative hearing to contest the denial. At that point, the Board through the CA Department of Consumer Affairs and the CA Attorney Generals Office will serve you with a Statement of Issues or Accusation. However, Sacramento Administrative Law lawyer Jonathan Turner has had great success assisting doctors and nurses in obtaining their CA licenses despite their having a history of prior professional license discipline in another state.
