The actions set forth in 244 CMR 7.00: Action on Complaints sections 04(1) through (6) constitute disciplinary actions the Board may impose on any license to engage in the practice of nursing in Massachusetts or APRN authorization, or both, or on the right to renew such license. Except as provided by 244 CMR 7.05, the Board may only impose disciplinary action as part of a final decision or order issued in connection with the adjudication of a complaint, or under the terms of an agreement entered into between a nurse licensed by the Board and the Board in resolution of any complaint.
A disciplinary action constitutes a public record and is reportable by the Board to other licensing entities and, in accordance with Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 112, Section 772, to national disciplinary data reporting systems as disciplinary action on any license to practice nursing in Massachusetts or on any APN authorization, or both, or on the right to renew such license.
