Employer Complaints

Complaint Evaluation Tool (CET)

The Complaint Evaluation Tool (CET) was developed by the Board of Nursing to identify and clarify when practice events require a report to the Board. The CET serves as a framework through which employers, nursing leaders, and the Board of Nursing can evaluate and analyze practice events or errors with consistency and fairness. The CET is designed for use only when evaluating clinical practice events or issues involving nurses.
