WHO SHOULD FILE A COMPLAINT?

Anyone may file a complaint. 

Employers, Licensees and Certificate Holders are  required to report incidents when an APRN, RN, LPN or CNA has been terminated, voluntarily or involuntarily, for any act/incident which would be a violation of the Board’s Rules or the Nurse Practice Act. (See Wyoming Statute § 33-21-153) for specific reporting requirements). Licensees or Certificate holders must self disclose in the case of an impending criminal charge or civil violation.  (See Wyoming Statute § 33-21-146(a)(viii) for specific reporting requirements). Also, use this complaint portal if you have a complaint on an education program.
