Nursing Discipline cases can In Illinois, a nurse’s license is governed by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). If a nurse is alleged to have violated a section of the Nurse Practices Act, the IDFPR will issue a complaint requesting action on the nurse’s license. Some of the allegations that can cause a complaint to be filed are as follows:
It is important to have an experienced nursing license attorney assist you in addressing a complaint from the moment it is received. This includes requesting evidence packets, formally answering the complaint, and interviewing witnesses. After that, there may be a preliminary hearing, informal conferences, and/or a formal administrative hearing. Each one of these junctures is a critical point in the process. Some can be completed through teleconference, and others take place in downtown Chicago, Illinois.
