Nursing Laws and Ethical Issues in Nursing/ PHE3040 WEEK 4 DISCUSSION

Part I: Nursing Laws
When nurses exceed their scope of practice, they violate their nursing license and may be performing tasks that are reserved by statute for another healthcare professional, such as a physician (Fremgen, 2012). Due to the shortage of nurses, their responsibilities are ever increasing, which may lead to actions that result in malpractice. However, nurses have not generally been involved in lawsuits for exceeding their scope of practice or violating their license, unless they also acted negligently (Fremgen, 2012).
Accordingly, by using the Internet resources, research your state’s nursing laws and regulations. Based on the knowledge gained from your readings, respond to the following questions with examples:

When should a nurse question the actions of a doctor?
When can a nursing license be suspended or revoked?
