Wagener to Discuss Nurses’ Legal Rights in Protecting and Defending Nursing Licenses
Susan Wagener will be one of the featured speakers at the American Nurses Association’s Illinois Professional Issues Conference, which is being held in Lisle, Illinois, on November 3.

Her session will include an overview of the licensure disciplinary process, a discussion of the types of actions that can lead to investigation, a primer on nurses’ legal rights and responsibilities, and strategies to use to advocate on their own behalf in disciplinary matters.
