Petitioner, a county nurse manager, was demoted and reassigned for training based upon allegations of an employee under her direct supervision, later corroborated by other employees, that she demonstrated a lack of work ethic, competence, and professionalism. Petitioner was subsequently terminated after the nursing managers to whom she was reassigned reported that she demonstrated a “dangerous lack of competence.” The Court determined that Petitioner was appropriately demoted and dismissed according to State Personnel Board rules for negligence and inefficiency in performing her assigned duties.
