KINGSPORT — State Rep. Tony Shipley said Tuesday night the license suspension process of three nurses last year by the Tennessee Board of Nursing “offended me constitutionally.”

Shipley told a Kingsport Tea Party group he advocated for those nurses because their constitutional rights were violated.

“They had exhausted all their finances,” Shipl e y, R-Kingsport, said of nurse practitioners Bobby Reynolds II, Tina Killebrew and David Stout Jr. “They had exhausted all their means. They had nowhere to turn to.”
