The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by a nurse attorney. 

One of the best examples where a client failed to hire the right nurse attorney will be discussed in this case. 

On or about March 1, 2015, through February 8, 2016, while employed in a medical facility in Kingwood, the LVN practiced as a Vocational Nurse without a current license. Board records indicate that her license expired on February 28, 2015, and was not renewed until February 8, 2016. Her conduct misled patients, their families, fellow care givers, and the public into believing the LVN’s nursing practice was in compliance with all Board Rules and Regulations.

Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing. During the hearing, the LVN states she thought that her license was due for renewal February 2016. She has been working in a private cardiology practice since February 2009. The reason that she continued working since February 28, 2015, when her renewal was up, was that she unaware that her license needed to be renewed at that time.

The LVN failed to properly present and defend her case against the court. She was disciplined warning to suspension of her LVN license by violating Texas Board of Nursing regulation.

Avoid a similar thing from happening on your end. Make sure to find the right nurse attorney in case a complaint will be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
