The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by the right nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
On or about June 2, 2006, the RN submitted a License Renewal form Registered Nurse to the Board of Nurse Examiners for the State of Texas in which she answered “No” to the question:
“Have you been convicted, adjudged guilty by a court, plead guilty, no contest or nolo contendere to any crime in any state, territory or country, whether or not a sentence was imposed, including any pending criminal charges or unresolved arrest (excluding minor traffic violations)?
The RN failed to disclose that on or about August 7, 2003, she entered a plea of Guilty and was convicted of FORGERY FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT, a State Jail Felony offense.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. In response, the RN states that at this time, in 2003, she was divorced. Her ex-husband, in an attempt to get out of child support arrears and obtain custody of their daughter, sent her a check for a part of the past due amount and later stated it was forged. She took the advice of her attorney during the entire process in regard to her nursing application.
Additionally, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
