A Consent Agreement is a settlement agreement between the Board and the licensee. The agreement is the result of an informal settlement of a complaint filed against a licensee. Consent Agreements with a Probation requirement generally include certain restrictions in the practice of a registered professional nurse. Time is counted toward the required probationary period only while the individual nurse is working as a registered professional nurse. If an individual does not work for a period of time, this time is not counted toward the probation requirement. Therefore, some individuals may have a probation license longer than the dates may suggest.


A reprimand is the least restrictive disciplinary action the Board takes against a license. A licensee can practice if a reprimand has been issued against the license.


A suspension is generally the result of a violation of a contract between the licensee and the Board. A suspension can also be the resulting action taken by the Board in relation to discipline. A licensee cannot practice nursing while the license is suspended.


A Summary Suspension is an action taken by the Board when a licensee is considered an immediate threat to public safety. A licensee receiving a Summary Suspension cannot work as a nurse or represent themselves as such.


A Reinstatement occurs when a licensee has completed the discipline requirements. Reinstatement may return the license to the full unencumbered status or return a suspended license to a Probation status, or any other action the Board deems appropriate.
