    You may be facing disciplinary action by the Board of Registered Nursing or Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians, depending on what type of license you maintain, if the agency reports you for patient abandonment and/or other alleged misconduct.

    I'm uncertain as to how the BBS instituted 4 years of probation without your agreement/acceptance. Typically, clients enter into a Stipulated Settlement Agreement and Disciplinary Order wherein the agree to certain terms/requirements. Your question makes it sound like the BBS did this independently, and you are now trying to attack/reverse their terms...but that isn't possible given the Admin. Procedures Act and other applicable legal authority. Feel free to contact our offices or another qualified license defense attorney for a free consultation.
