One of the grounds for denial of a license and disciplining a license is unprofessional conduct. Unprofessional conduct means any departure from or failure to conform to the standards of acceptable and prevailing practice of a profession or occupation or the ethics of the profession or occupation, regardless of whether a person, patient, or entity is injured, or conduct that is likely to deceive or defraud the public or is detrimental to the public interest. This includes, but is not limited to, the list of unprofessional conducts which can be found in the Uniform Credentialing Act, Neb. Rev. Stat. 38-179.
Additional conducts considered to be unprofessional conduct for veterinarians or veterinary technicians can be found at 172 NAC 180-011.
