Phoebe is a professional 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 Phoebe’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 her before the BON. It was alleged in the complaint that the RN nurse pleaded guilty to the possession of a controlled substance. This act is considered as a 3rd Degree Felony offense.
As a result of the plea, the proceedings against the RN nurse were deferred without entering an adjudication of guilt. The RN nurse was placed on probation for a period of three years and he was ordered to pay a fine, court costs and restitution. This action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452 of the Texas Occupation Code. Moreover, it is also a violation of the Texas Administrative Code.
During the hearing of the case, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) gave her an opportunity to depend her side. She appeared before the Board without a lawyer. It was her option to use self-representation. Instead of hiring a competent nursing defense attorney to handle the case, RN nurse Phoebe chose to face the complaint on her own, without a counsel helping her. This was a big mistake because the Board ruled that Phoebe should be held liable for his own negligence. Thereafter, the BON ordered for the revocation of her license.
