In Texas, the government has created a special agency that has the jurisdiction to handle controversies and cases involving the nursing profession. This tribunal is called the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). Every RN or LVN subjected to a disciplinary proceeding or administrative case before the Board is given an opportunity to be heard and defend himself from all accusations. This every nurse with a pending case before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is to encourage hiring a nurse attorney.
Unfortunately, there are some RN and LVN who fail to find the right nurse attorney to handle their cases. As a result, most of them would be adjudged liable for the complaints. This usually leads to the revocation of a professional nursing license. This is what happened to an RN in El Paso, Texas and had been in that position for seven months at the time of the incident.
On or about May 6, 2014, the RN defaulted on her guaranteed student loans, as provided in Section 57.491 of the Texas Education Code. Her failure to repay her Texas Guaranteed Student Loan may have deprived other applicants of funds for nursing school loans.
On or about November 10, 2015, the RN entered a plea of Guilty to POSSESSION OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE PENALTY GROUP 1 OVER 4 GRAMS UNDER 200 GRAMS WITH INTENT TO DELIVER, 1st Degree Felony offense committed on August 27, 2015.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to give her a fair chance to defend her case. She was given the chance to defend herself at the Board.
However, the Texas Board of disciplined and suspended her RN license.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) found her guilty for the complaint against her and her RN license was suspended. She lost the case simply because the RN failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
