Accusations are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations against them can be denied by the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an RN in Texas failed to do so.

At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed at a health facility in Pharr, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and three (3) months. 

On or about February 24, 2021, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN allowed a nurse to continue to work in the graduate nurse program without a valid license after she informed him she had failed the NCLEX. Subsequently, the temporary permit issued to the nurse expired on February 24, 2021. The graduate nurse continued to work as a nurse until April 9, 2021. The RN’s conduct deceived patients, their families, fellow caregivers, and the public in that they believed graduate nurses’ nursing practice was in compliance with all Board Rules and Regulations. 

As a response, the RN states he assumed the role of Medical-Oncology-Assistant Director of Nursing at the Hospitals in El Paso, Texas, from approximately 10/2019 thru 05/2021. The RN added that the alleged violation involved the Graduate Nurse, who failed to notify him immediately that she had not passed her NCLEX exam. He was also not provided with her exam date when she onboarded. According to the RN, there is typically a manager notification/escalation process from human resources that also did not occur. The RN said that the issue was brought to light once her consecutive call-ins were addressed and further investigated. In addition, the RN states that the graduate nurse said she needed more study time. The RN also stated did his best to accommodate her request and afford her the study time she needed accordingly.

Accusations may compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you with the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.

Because the RN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license to disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
