Students/Public Complaints

The Kentucky Board of Nursing (KBN) is interested in ensuring that programs of nursing are in compliance with the administrative regulations that govern them to ensure public safety through safe nursing care. KBN will consider written and signed complaints about nursing education programs which pose issues of non-compliance with the Kentucky Administrative Regulations that govern nursing education. The Kentucky Administration Regulations can be located on the KBN web page at under the tab entitled "Legal".

While the KBN has no purview over school policies, grades, or conflicts between students and faculty, each program is required to have processes in place for dealing with grievances. Students and faculty are encouraged to follow the appropriate procedure in the institution. Review the nursing program handbook, college handbook and/or contact student services for the proper procedure.
