A RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney.  Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.

The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license.  The BON has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license.  It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.

On or about August 31, 2009, when an LVN from Iowa submitted an Online Renewal Document License Vocational Nurse to the Texas Board Of Nursing, she provided false and deceptive information, in that she answered “No” to the question:  “Have you, within the past 24 months  or since your last renewal, for any criminal  offense, including those pending appeal:

  1. been convicted of a misdemeanor?
  2. been convicted of a felony?
  3. pled nolo contendere, no contest, or guilty?
  4. received deferred adjudication?
  5. been placed on community supervision or court-ordered probation, whether or not adjudicated guilty?
  6. been sentenced to serve jail or prison time?  court-ordered confinement?
  7. been granted pre-trial diversion?
  8. been arrested or any pending criminal charges?
  9. been cited or charged with any violation of the law?
  10. been subject of a court-martial; Article 15 violation, or received any form of military judgment/punishment/action?”

The LVN failed to disclose that, on or about October 29, 2007, she was arrested by the police for CREDIT CARD OR DEBIT CARD ABUSE which is a State Jail Felony offense, and that the criminal charge was still pending  at the time that  she submitted her Renewal to the Board.

Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing summoned the LVN. However, during the hearing, she neither admits nor denies the allegations. The result is a suspension and discipline by the Texas Board of Nursing.

She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Hiring a nurse attorney could have properly defend her side and saved her from the disciplinary action put by the Texas Board of Nursing. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
