The challenge to regulatory boards has always been maintaining the balance between an individual's desire to practice a chosen profession and the board's responsibility to protect the public from unsafe practitioners. Reasonable people can differ in how best to protect the public. And our boards vary in their approaches to a number of issues. I think many regulators recognize that providing access to nursing care is part of protecting the public.
