The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is responsible for regulating the practice of nursing within the state and has the power to adjudicate complaints filed against nurses. The BON investigates all complaints filed about a nurse’s potential violations of the Nursing Practice Act and decides whether the claim should be pursued. If you have received notice of a BON complaint that has been filed against you, it is vital that you take this process very seriously. It can affect your livelihood and leave a blemish on your professional record if not handled properly.
Defending Your Case
After a complaint has been filed against you, you may receive notice from the BON so that you can offer an explanation. Depending on the facts of your case, it may be possible to engage in informal settlement discussions with the BON rather quickly. If an informal settlement is not possible, a formal settlement process will take place. This could ultimately end with disciplinary action being taken, including having your nursing license revoked.
It is important to engage counsel so that you are represented throughout this entire process. Your ability to resolve any charges quickly before a disciplinary action is taken can be the difference between you keeping your job and losing your ability to practice as a nurse ever again.
