Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a skilled nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
On or about January 15, 2008, an LVN from El Paso submitted a renewal application to the Texas Board of Nursing in which she answered “Yes” to the following question: “Have you, within the past 24 months or since your last renewal, for any criminal offense, including those pending appeal:
- been convicted of a misdemeanor?
- been convicted of a felony?
- pled nolo contendere, no contest, or guilty?
- received deferred adjudication?
- been placed on community supervision or court-ordered probation, whether or not adjudicated guilty?
- been sentenced to serve jail or prison time?
- court-ordered confinement?
- been granted pre-trial diversion?
- been arrested or any pending criminal charges?
- been cited or charged with any violation of the law?
- been subject of a court-martial;
- Article 15 violation; or received any form of military judgement/punishment/action?”
On or about March 11, 1992, she pled guilty to the offense of Possession of a Controlled Substance, Namely: Amphetamine of Less Than Twenty-Eight Grams, a 3rd Degree Felony.
The LVN was summoned before the Board to defend against the case. But without the proper help from a good defense attorney, the RN lost the case and she was disciplined and suspended.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
