A licensed nurse (RN or LVN) in Texas may be subjected to a disciplinary proceeding before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). When this happens, the assistance of a good defense Attorney comes in handy. Doing such will help the LVN or RN licensed nurse to defend his case and protect his or her RN or LVN license. Otherwise, there is a chance that the licensed nurse (RN or LVN) may not convince The Texas Board of Nursing (BON)w and end up losing the right to practice as RN or LVN nurse in the State of Texas.
The disciplinary proceedings before the Texas Board of Nurse (BON) is an administrative proceeding wherein LVN or RN nurses are charged for the commission of an offense or violation of certain Texas laws. A nurse named Angel was one of the professionals charged before the Board. She was given a license to practice as LVN , which enabled her to land a job in a public hospital.
When Annie’s LVN nurse license expired last year, she immediately filed an Online Renewal Document to the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). However, she provided false, deceptive and/or misleading information in that she answered “No” to the question
“Have you, within the past twenty four months, or since your last renewal, for any criminal offense, including those pending appeal been convicted of a felony, misdemeanor or charged for violation of an offense?”
Nonetheless, it was shown that the LVN licensed nurse failed to disclose that she was actually found guilty of issuance of a bad check, which is a misdemeanor offense. Clearly, she failed to disclose an important and material fact in her Renewal Document. Eventually, a complaint was filed against her before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
Believing that the case is not fatal to her LVN nursing license, she decided to waive a representation by a defense lawyer in Texas. This was a wrong move on her part since the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) found her guilty of violating the rules and regulations that every LVN or RN nurse must comply. Her arguments were based on the fact that he did not have any intention to provide false or deceptive information. For failure to hire the right nursing defense lawyer, she lost the privilege to continue her nursing profession.
