Board Committees

Discipline Committee (DC)   

DC Committee Charge 

The Committee serves to provide preliminary decision making regarding complaints initiated against nurses or nursing assistants in the State of Wyoming.  The Committee will engage in investigation of complaints, as well as consideration of additional information that may influence whether to recommend disciplinary action against a licensee or certificate holder, such as revocation, surrender, or suspension, including any conditions or limitations to practice that should be recommended if investigation reveals that the licensee or certificate holder may safely practice under such conditions or limitations.  In urgent matters, the Committee may institute summary suspension proceedings.  As any proposed limitation to practice under a nurse license or nursing assistant certificate gives rise to a right to hearing, the Committee members may be required to testify regarding the basis for recommended disciplinary action of a licensee or certificate holder.
