Press Release: Individuals Targeting Nurses
The North Carolina Board of Nursing (NCBON) has received information that individuals are contacting nurses via telephone regarding pending investigations and reinstatement following discipline. The callers may identify themselves as an employee of the NCBON investigating the nurse, or as an employee of a company working with the NCBON to facilitate the licensure reinstatement process following discipline, for a fee. The caller may have the nurse’s license number or other personal information. These individuals are not affiliated with the NCBON. The NCBON notifies any nurse under investigation via written correspondence (not telephone), does not request personal bank account information and does not work with a third party company to process reinstatements due to discipline; any request for reinstatement following discipline should go directly through NCBON staff.
