If you have been reported and have received a letter from the Texas Board of Nursing regarding a case or complaint filed against you, seeking and hiring a nurse attorney is the solution for that. This should be the first thing to do for an RN or an LVN before facing the case they are in.
At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed as a Director of Med-Surgical Services at a hospital in San Antonio, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years.
An incident happened on or about January 5, 2019, through August 2020, when the RN misrepresented herself as a family nurse practitioner (FNP) to staff, patients, and the general public, in that she is displayed the credentials “FNP” after her name on her ID badge, business card, email name block with DHR Health System and on her lab coat. Additionally, the RN only holds a license to practice professional nursing (RN) but does not hold a license as an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN). The RN’s conduct deceived patients, their families, fellow caregivers, and the public in that they believed the RN’s nursing practice was in compliance with all Board Rules and Regulations.
In response to the incident above, the RN claims and denies all accusations or allegations about her. And because of the incident above, the Texas Board of Nursing decided to put her into the discipline as a result of her actions. But she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
