I have been searching throughout the forums for information regarding legal implications of Nurses practicing without a license, either status "denied" or "expired" . The other day at work one of my co-workers searched the license verification site and found more than one nurse working on our floor with questionable license status :angryfire . Any info would be appreciated
in texas if you practice nursing without a license you are reported to the district attorney in that county...then they give you a new title...nurse imposter...

Yes, the bosses do know. Apparently there is suppose to be some big meeting with the CNO to determine the fate of the nurses...to me their should be no question regarding their jobs...and only two words need to be spoken during the meeting "you're fired".
I know I had to hand over my orignal license when I was hired. I think they were GN's (grad nurses) at hire and maybe failed the boards or never took the boards...either way it's totally criminal
