Nurses facing Arizona Board of Nursing complaints or investigations may be subject to probation, suspension or revocation of their nursing license. Additionally, a nurse may have difficulty finding future employment and can even be terminated from their current position because of a complaint or investigation. This is why complaints or an investigation should be dealt with proactively. Once a nurse receives notice of a complaint or investigation it’s important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. This ensures the most accurate and effective response.

- Criminal convictions
