Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for your case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to properly defend them. This RN from Houston, Texas happens to be one of them.
On August 5, 2016, the RN was issued a Confidential Agreed Order for Peer Assistance Program by the Texas Board of Nursing. However, the RN has not successfully completed the terms of the Order.
On or about November 14, 2016, she became non-compliant with the Confidential Agreed Order for Peer Assistance Program issued to her by the Texas Board of Nursing on August 5, 2016.
In response to the events happened, the RN states she’s been under medical attention since November 2015 and has been taking her medication as directed. Her paperwork was not submitted in time because her physician stated she wasn’t prepared. She has since signed off and is waiting on the next steps. She states her license is important to her and she wants to be reconsidered for the Texas Peer Assistance Program (TPAPN).
On November 22, 2016, the RN was assessed by Board Certified Psychologist, who noted the RN had a mental illness diagnosis but states her mood has become normal with no anxiety, no psychosis, her thinking is clear, she has vastly improved, and is good to resume work as a nurse. He did not note any treatment recommendations and states she has been well for about two months.
Thus, the Texas Board of Nursing subjected her license for revocation.
