Joyce is a professional RN nurse who graduated from a prominent university in Texas. Right after graduation, she immediately took a review and filed an application to take the nursing examination before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). She passed the board examination after one-take. She has long employment history, considering the fact that he had experience in working for over fifteen medical facilities.
Everything went smoothly in the early years of Joyce’s career. There were no problems at all until one day; he received a notice of hearing from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). Apparently, a case was filed against him before the BON. At this point, it is important to emphasize that the case of Joyce does not involve a misconduct related to her nursing duty. She committed a crime but somehow, it has an adverse effect for her nursing license.
It was alleged in the complaint that on or about November 7, 2011, the RN nurse was convicted in the United States District Court of Texas for “Possession of child Pornography. On February 8, 2012, the RN nurse was sentenced to be imprisoned (beginning January 8, 2013), for a term of fifty-seven (57) months at a United States of Prisons in Butner, North Carolina, with credit given for time served while in custody. Additionally, it was ordered that upon release from imprisonment, the RN nurse would be placed on supervised release for a period of three (3) years.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action accordance with Sectionn53.0219b) and 301.452(b)(3)&(10), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of Texas Administrative Code 217.12(13). Because of this, the Texas Boarding of Nursing (BON) decided to suspend the license of the RN nurse. Instead of hiring a competent nursing defense attorney to handle the case, RN nurse Joyce chose to face the complaint on his own, without a counsel helping her. This is a big mistake because the Board ruled that Marriane should be held liable for his own negligence. Thereafter, the BON ordered for the revocation of her license.
