Complaints regarding expired license are one of the issues a nurse attorney can solve. However, many nurses failed to hire the best nurse attorney, which resulted in discipline.
On or about June 1, 2014, through May 1, 2016, while employed in a healthcare facility in Arlington, the RN practiced as a Registered Nurse without a valid license. Board records indicate that her license expired on May 31, 2014.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. During the defense, she states that she renewed her license online in May 2014 and paid via debit card. She states she was unaware that payment had not gone through. The RN further states she immediately informed her employer, and her employer was also unaware of her delinquent status.
However, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
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.
