An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a skilled 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.
On or about March 28, 2013, an RN from Houston submitted an Online Renewal Document to the Texas Board of Nursing in which he provided false, deceptive, and/or misleading information, in that he 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:
- been convicted of a misdemeanor?
- been convicted of a felony?
- pled nolo contendere, no contest, or guilty?
- received deferred adjudication?
- been placed on community supervision or court-ordered probation, whether or not adjudicated guilty?
- been sentenced to serve jail or prison time?
- court-ordered confinement?
- been granted pre-trial diversion?
- been arrested or have any pending criminal charges?
- been cited or charged with any violation of the law?
- been subject of a court-martial;
- Article 15 violation; or received any form of military judgment/punishment/action?”
The RN failed to disclose that on or about April 27, 2012, she was for DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED, a Class A misdemeanor offense.
Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.
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 Board 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.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
