Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for the 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 defend them. Unfortunately, this RN from Katy, Texas happens to be one of them.
On or about July 6, 2009, the RN was arrested by the police and charged for THEFT a Class A misdemeanor offense committed on or about July 6, 2009.
During the hearing, the RN states that in 2009 while working out at her high school she entered an unlocked door in the main building to use the restroom. She passed by the Technology Department and saw a laptop that she knew belonged to the school. She put the laptop in her bag. That night she realized that she made a mistake and turned herself in to the Sheriff’s Department. She was placed on deferred adjudication for one year. She completed and satisfied all the conditions of the probation and the case was dismissed
Unfortunately, without the lack of an effective nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing decided to take disciplinary action against the RN.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the RN license. The strictness of the Board also ensures that nurses will only commit to the duties they are assigned to in order to guarantee accurate and excellent performance in all hospitals throughout the state of Texas.
