You’re a health care provider, healer, or caregiver. You’ve dedicated your career to caring for others. It’s not just a job, it's part of your identity.

But now you wonder why you no longer feel compassion for your patients, or you dread going to work. Perhaps you made a mistake at work and a patient suffered harm. Or you watched a colleague make a mistake or witnessed an unanticipated outcome that ended tragically.

You want to talk to someone but don’t want to burden or scare your family.  And you feel too much shame to discuss it with co-workers. You re-live the experience repeatedly, can’t concentrate, and are terrified of another mistake.

You fear a lawsuit. Or maybe the patient’s already sued and the letter from your licensing board just arrived announcing its investigation, while you’re still overwhelmed by the investigation going on at work. You’re afraid that you’ll lose your license—and your ability to earn a living.

I can help. For over 25 years, I have successfully defended every one of my licensure defense clients, obtaining either a dismissal without discipline, or a negotiated agreement for a specific result.

If you already have an attorney for your malpractice lawsuit or your licensure matter, I can help by coaching you through the experience and helping you not only learn to master stress, but find in the challenge the opportunities for growth, learning, and yes—even healing. 

I bring my heart AND mind to the art of practice—whether providing legal, coaching or consulting services—to help you keep your license and your sense of well-being.

Under the new law, advanced practice nurses are eligible for separate APRN licensure, the requirements of which are set forth in the new MN 148.211. Subd.1a.   In addition to ...

Two Sides (at least!) to Every Story

Posted by Katherine J Pohlman on Tuesday, November 12, 2013,
If you haven’t seen the recent Minneapolis Star Tribune articles about nursing discipline in Minnesota, I strongly advise that you check out both.  The initial October 7, 2013 article, In Minnesota, Nurses in Trouble Get Second Chances, focused primarily on the Board of Nursing. The November 4, 2013 article, Special Report: Addicted Nurses Keep Licenses, turned its guns on the Health Professionals Services Program (HPSP), which serves all Minnesota licensed health care professionals by prov...
