The Oregon State Board of Nursing is aware of the current legal situation regarding reproductive health care options.  In keeping with its mission to protect the public, the OSBN will continue to monitor developments and provide guidance to Oregon nurses as they deliver reproductive healthcare that is consistent with established standards of care and the Nurse Practice Act.
OSBN Official Statement on Operation Nightingale
Scam Alert: The OSBN has received several reports that scam artists posing as OSBN investigators are calling licensees.  The scammers claim they are calling about an investigation and that your nursing license may be suspended for illegal drug trafficking.  Some scammers may demand a monetary payment to end the investigation or to prevent your license from being suspended.  The scammers’ phone number may show up as the OSBN office number (971) 673-0685.  Boards of nursing and other regulatory organizations across the country have reported similar scam calls in recent months.  No OSBN investigator or staff member will ever contact licensees by telephone to demand money or any other form of payment.  If you receive a call such as the one described, hang up immediately.  Do not disclose any personal information, i.e., social security number, dates of birth, or credit/debit card numbers.
