The work of an LVN or RN nurse in the state of Texas is not an easy thing to do. There can be some complications that need to be addressed as soon as they arise. Otherwise, the nursing license of a particular nurse may be suspended or revoked by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). At the same time, there is also a possibility of the imposition of fines. The order depends on the finding of guilt or innocence of the RN or LVN nurse involved.
As a professional nurse, you may find yourself in a compromising situation. This is the kind of situation where you may end up losing your nursing license. As such, it is highly recommended that you get in touch with a nursing defense attorney whom you can trust. Do not wait for the proceedings to prosper without hiring a lawyer to help you. Take note that the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may issue orders that can no longer be appealed.
To illustrate this, let me bring up a particular case involving a registered nurse named Cel. He is a RN nurse employed in one of the famous hospitals in Texas. While on duty, the RN nurse failed to comply with the state laws mandated by the state. He was arrested for being in possession of marijuana. The amount of which was in excess of 100 kilos, which is an aggravating circumstance for the criminal charge of illegal possession of prohibited substances.
Because of this, an administrative case was filed before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). It was alleged that the RN nurse lacked fitness in practicing professional nurse. His conduct was a clear violation of the Texas Administrative Code. At the same time, a criminal case was also filed before the courts of justice. Eventually, the RN nurse Cel was proven to be guilty of the offense charge. As a result of conviction, Petitioner was sentenced to confinement in the United State Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned. According to the judge, he is guilty beyond proof of reasonable doubt. Moreover, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) ordered for the revocation of his nursing license.
The RN nurse waived notice and hearing. He even waived his right to be represented by the counsel. All these waivers did not help him at all because the BON eventually ordered for the suspension of his nursing license. The unfortunate result of the case of Cel was only an example of a situation that may arise when one is faced with criminal and administrative charges without the assistance of the right nursing defense lawyer.
