Welcome to Advocates for Nurses, a platform founded by Maggie Ortiz, RN, MSN, driven by a deep commitment to justice and due process for nurses. Having served as an Investigator at a Board of Nursing, Maggie witnessed firsthand the alarming lack of due process afforded to nurses facing complaints. Unlike criminal and civil defendants, nurses often find themselves at the mercy of their state Board of Nursing, with no oversight or recourse.
Did you know that anyone can file a complaint against your nursing license, putting your livelihood in jeopardy? State Boards of Nursing operate with unchecked authority, impervious even to judicial orders. This stark reality spurred Maggie to become an unwavering advocate for nurses' rights.
