The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
On or about April 13, 2016, an RN from Houston was convicted of DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED, a Class B misdemeanor offense committed on January 25, 2016.
On or about September 28, 2017, she was also accused of UNAUTH USE OF VEHICLE, a State Jail Felony offense committed on August 7, 2017.
During the hearing, the RN states the incident was due in part of a domestic altercation with her significant other and poor decision making. Alcohol was a major contributor to the situation and now realized how the treatment was needed in order for her to learn to avoid repeating the vicious cycle. The RN states she has permanently removed herself from the dangerous, volatile environment and is now focused on obtaining her MBA-MSN degree.
This is just one of the many cases why every nurse in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. Gross negligence, disobedience or any form of offense on the part of an RN or LVN is never excused.
Any type of accusations can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
The RN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
