Anyone who wants to become a professional nurse in the state of Texas needs to go through several processes. This is the main reason why you should be careful when doing your job, or else, complaints or charges might be filed against you. Without the help of a nurse attorney, you might get suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.

One recent case filed before the Texas Board of Nursing involved an RN. At the time of the incident, the RN was employed as a Registered Nurse with a hospital in Allen, Texas, and had been in that position for five (5) years and six (6) months.

It was on or about May 9, 2018, while employed as the RN in that hospital, the RN submitted a work release form for her son containing the signature of a physician for a date of service in which he was not seen by the physician or at the facility.

In regards to the above incident, the RN admits to writing the medical excuse note for her son. The RN states that her actions were influenced by her concern for her son’s welfare. The RN states that she is extremely remorseful for her actions and adds that it will never happen again.

The Texas BON found the RN’s conduct violated a section of the Texas Occupations Code. Thus, her RN license was disciplined and she received sanctions that she needs to comply with.

The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN sufficient time to defend herself from the allegation filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right nurse attorney to handle her case. This had caused and led to the discipline of the RN’s license.
