California Board of Nursing: Guide to Disciplinary Actions and Complaints
You’ve dedicated your life to becoming a healing caretaker in a lucrative but stressful profession as a nurse. It can be hard to deal with claims of wrongdoing that jeopardize your ability to work. While anybody can make a mistake, a mistake by a nurse, or even an unreasonable complaint from a dissatisfied patient or coworker, can result in a California Board of Nursing inquiry and potentially serious disciplinary consequences.
If you are facing a nurse complaint, investigation or disciplinary action, it is crucial that you understand the process and when to obtain expert legal counsel. Dealing with the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) and the California Board of Vocational Nurses and Psychiatric Technicians (BVNPT) involve risks you need to be aware of.
The California Board of Registered Nursing
The California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) and the California Board of Vocational Nurses and Psychiatric Technicians are the two licensing agencies that make up the California Board of Nursing (BVNPT). Both boards are part of the California Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA), and their disciplinary procedures are essentially identical.
The California Board of Registered Nursing oversees the licensure of RN registered nurses, with the goal of protecting customers’ health and safety while also promoting high-quality Registered Nursing care in the state. As of 2020, California has 458,165 active licensed registered nurses.
The CA BRN and the BVNPT fulfill their missions by:
Starting in 2010, the number of disciplinary measures taken by the California BRN grew considerably.
The California BRN takes pleasure in ensuring that consumers are well-protected. Enforcement consumes the majority of the BRN’s budget. In 2010, the California Board of Registered Nursing reorganized and employed internal investigators, which resulted in a significant rise in enforcement activities. Media scrutiny of publications comparing California’s enforcement numbers with those of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing prompted the reforms.
Following the growth of investigative resources in 2010, the BRN went on an enforcement blitz, pressing charges against people who would not have been charged previously. Since 2010, it has been considerably easier for nurses to lose their license due to unintentional errors and one-time inappropriate behavior. Practice errors, minor drug offenses, nurse DUIs, and criminal charges can all lead to job termination.
When facing a California Board of Nursing inquiry or criminal charge, it is more necessary than ever for nurses to seek legal advice from an experienced attorney.

Disciplinary Actions from the California Board of Nursing
Depending on the circumstances, the BRN takes a variety of nurse disciplinary actions. When deciding whether to revoke, suspend, or impose probation terms on a licensee for a violation of the Nursing Practice Act or the Business and Professions Code, the board examines the following 11 elements, according to BRN guidelines:
Various Nursing Disciplinary Actions
Nursing disciplinary actions go through six stages, with many different outcomes depending on the facts and the competence of your legal representation. The following are some of the probable outcomes of a Board of Nursing administrative hearing or discipline matter:
As permitted by BPC § 125.3, the board may also pursue obligatory cost recovery for compensation of its investigative and enforcement expenditures. BVNPT disciplinary actions are handled in the same way that BRN disciplinary actions are handled.
Complaint review process of California Board of Nursing
Many nurses believe the BRN and BVNPT are working for them. Regrettably, this is not the case. The California Board of Nursing prioritizes consumer protection over nurse protection. BRN complaints are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly.
California Board of Nursing complaint priorities
The Division of Investigation (DOI) of the California Department of Consumer Affairs prioritizes complaints into four categories:
Category 1: Urgent, for referral to the DOI
Category 2: High, for referral to the DOI
Category 3: Routine, for referral to the nursing board
Category 4: Routine, for referral to the nursing board
