Convicted criminals allowed to renew California nursing licenses

ProPublica's Tracy Weber and Charles Ornstein, in conjunction with The Los Angeles Times, have found over 115 cases in which the state of California did not seek to restrict or revoke nursing licenses until the nurses had three or more convictions. Twenty-four of the nurses had five convictions, and crimes ranged from Medicare fraud and drug possession to violent crimes such as sexual offenses and attempted murder.
