The Board's staff has become aware that an individual claiming to represent Wyoming State Board of Nursing (WSBN) is contacting licensees claiming their licenses are fraudulent or otherwise impaired. The individual is spoofing their Caller ID to appear as though they are calling from a Wyoming governmental agency. This is part of a nationwide wave of similar scams targeting professional license holders.
Please know that only the WSBN staff, in particular Cynthia LaBonde, Victoria Pike, or Alicia Stich-Clinard will contact you about the status of your license or any pending discipline. Further, your license cannot be revoked or impaired without following the process laid out in the Board's rules for disciplining licensees, including notice and an opportunity to be heard.
If you receive a suspicious call that you believe is fraudulent, please report it to local or federal law enforcement. If you have any questions about the status of your license, please do not hesitate to contact the Board's staff.
