The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the registered nurse license and licensed practical nurse license of Tyanna Connor, R.N., L.P.N., based on her misdemeanor conviction in the Seventh Judicial Circuit Court of Genesee County. Connor failed to report her conviction to MDCH as required by the Public Health Code.

On March 30, 2006, Connor was convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon-Attempt, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for a maximum term of two years. As a result, Connor was sentenced to 90 days in jail, placed on probation for 18 months with terms, and ordered to pay a total of $800 in fees and costs.

On August 22, 2006, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Connor’s licenses pursuant to the Public Health Code, which provides for the mandatory summary suspension of a health professional’s license upon the conviction of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for a maximum term of two years. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Connor’s nursing licenses.
