Nurse guilty of doing her job

Recently a nurse in Arizona was fired from a very large medical center and is "under investigation" with the State Board of Nursing for doing her job. In question is the very core of nursing practice: patient advocacy and education. Her story can be found on many nursing blogs and twitter - I have provided a link to one of the blogs below.

The nursing community is pulling together to help support her and bring media attention to her unfair situation. Read her story and you be the judge...

Arizona Nurse Has License Threatened By Doctor After Providing Patient Education


  1. Thank you so much for posting this and helping us get the message out about Amanda.

    We all know what it is like to have to work in fear. Amanda's case will help us come together as a nursing community to promote real change!

  2. No problem! I have been having dialogues with nurses at all levels about this situation...I am appalled for not only Amanda but for nursing as a profession!
