How to get your suspended Minnesota veterinary license reinstated

There are a number of reasons your license to practice veterinary medicine may be suspended. While it may have occurred because you failed to renew your license in time or to prove that you'd met the necessary continuing education, it might have also happened because you engaged in malpractice or committed a crime. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your suspension, it may be possible to file for a reinstatement of your medical license.

Reasons why a nurse can lose a license

Nurses are an important part of the medical industry. They work in hospitals, doctor's offices, schools and many other locations. No matter how well he or she performs his or her duties, a nurse can still face a hearing regarding his or her professional license. Here are some reasons why a nurse can lose a license in Minnesota:

A solid risk management plan can help nurses facing malpractice

Nursing can be a very stressful and hazardous profession. Every day, you might have to make a decision that could mean life or death to a patient. The "what ifs" that exist in the nursing profession are limitless and even a simple mistake could have dire consequences, which, in turn, could lead to the possible loss of your nursing license. This is where risk management comes in.

Nurses who suffer from depression can face a tough road

Nursing is a tough profession. Many nurses deal with the trials of life and the horrors of death on a daily basis. While facing these types of events can be a daily occurrence, it doesn't make them any easier to deal with.

Three things psychology professionals should keep in mind about disciplinary proceedings

We’ve previously looked at how physicians are regulated in the state of Minnesota, and the role of the Board of Medicine in licensing, regulating, and disciplining physicians in this state. Just as the medical profession has a professional board to handle regulatory and disciplinary matters, so too does the profession of psychology. According to the Minnesota Board of Psychology, ensuring safe, competent and ethical provision of psychological services is its primary mission.

Foreign-born physicians and the problem of prejudice, discrimination

Most people are familiar with the opportunity foreign physicians have to receive medical training in the United States, and the legal allowances made to allow immigrant physicians to begin practicing medicine in this country. These allowances are an important reason foreign physicians end up in rural or otherwise underserved communities.

Work with experienced advocate to ensure accurate information in complaint review process

Communication is important in any relationship, and the doctor-patient relationship is no different. When patients feel their physician is transparent with them and has their best interests at heart, the provision of health care typically goes more smoothly. Not only are health outcomes usually better, but patients are less likely to sue for medical malpractice in the event something does go wrong.
