I'm a first semester ADN student and today one of my instructors showed us a list from her RN Update of RN's who have had their licenses revoked for one reason or another. My question is...what would be reasons that your license would be revoked? Many of us were asking the instructors, but they were just as baffled as we were. For a couple of them, it has been years since they have actually worked on a floor caring for patients and said that many problems nurses have or mistakes they might make are handled with remediation and/or disciplinary actions, but not revoking their license.
Does anyone have any thought on this? I would like to be able to tell my classmates what could lead to revoke of your license so we'll be sure never to do that.
I would think it would have to be something pretty bad......
