Being non-compliant with the terms in the Agreed Order could become a big problem and could be a risk to your license. It is why every RNs/LVNs facing disciplinary proceedings should take it seriously and be compliant with every term that is agreed upon to prevent the worst from happening. It is time that you need the help of a nurse attorney when undergoing disciplinary proceedings.

At the time of the initial incidents, an RN was employed as a staff nurse in a hospital in Fort Hood, Texas, and had been in that position for seven (7) months.

On or about February 10, 2017, the RN failed to comply with the Agreed Order WARNING W/ STIPULATION issued on February 9, 2016, by the. Texas Board of Nursing. Non-compliance is the result of the RN’s failure to comply with Stipulation Number Three-A, of the Order which states, in the pertinent part:

“A RESPONDENT SHALL successfully complete the following remedial education courses (s) within one (l) year of entry of this Order, unless otherwise specifically indicated’ A course in Texas nursing jurisprudence and ethics that shall be a minimum of six (6) hours in length.”

And Lastly, on or about February 10, 2017, the RN failed to comply with the Agreed Order WARNING W/STIPULATION issued on February 9, 2016, by the Texas Board of Nursing. Non-compliance is the result of the RN’sfailure to comply with Stipulation Numbers Three-D (Ill-D), of the Order which states, in pertinent part:

“D. RESPONDENT SHALL successfully complete the following remedial education courses (s) one (l) year of entry of this Order unless otherwise, specifically indicated’ The course “Sharpening Critical Thinking Skills,” a 3.6 contact hour online program provided by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Leaming Extension.”

In response to the incidents, the RN states that she has not taken the classes yet because of how expensive they are. The RN states that since she got fired from Abilene State Living Center and her license was referred, she did not know if she should have attempted to take the classes since she did not know what the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) was going to do with her license.

However, her lack of an experienced nurse attorney to properly defend and assist her during the disciplinary proceedings led to her voluntarily surrendering her license.

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.
