Is Your Kentucky Nursing License In Jeopardy?
You have worked hard to build a profession as a licensed nurse. However, all of that hard work and dedication can be wiped away if you lose your license. If you have received a notice of complaint from the Kentucky Board of Nursing (KBN), you should immediately seek experienced legal counsel. Now is the time to be proactive because when you receive a complaint from the KBN, you are subjected to the legal process, both statutory and regulatory. In some matters, nurses have not done anything wrong but are the target of unjust complaints.
To successfully defend your license, you need an attorney who has a thorough understanding of the administrative processes and can adequately protect your license. At Strause Law Group, PLLC, a major focus of our firm is administrative and regulatory compliance law. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing nurses and other professionals who are facing disciplinary action by their respective licensing boards.

Nurse Licensure Compact and Actions Against Your License
Kentucky is a part of the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC). The NLC permits nurses who are licensed in a Compact state such as Kentucky to practice nursing in a different Compact state even though they may not hold a license in that state. Whether a nurse practices in Kentucky only or multiple jurisdictions, a complaint can have far-reaching implications, which is why it is important to seek counsel from an experienced attorney that understands potential collateral consequences of licensure investigations and disciplinary action. Our firm makes it a priority to help and educate nurses to understand and weigh their options so they can make educated decisions concerning their nursing license and career.
We are dedicated to helping you protect and preserve your ability to practice nursing.
