The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by a nurse attorney.
One of the examples where a client failed to hire the right nurse attorney will be discussed in this case.
On May 2017, an RN from Houston submitted an online renewal of the license. However, she failed to disclose that on or about May 8. 1992 she was charged with UNLAWFULLY DRIVING A MOTOR VEHICLE UPON A PUBLIC HIGHWAY WHILE INTOXICATED (a misdemeanor offense committed on June 8, 1991).
When questioned, the RN Respondent states: “I was in fact involved in a single-car MVA on June 8th, 1991. I was convicted of DWI on or about May 5th, 1992. I requested probation on or about May 8th, 1992 and it was granted. I did meet all of my probation requirements. I do however admit to having some difficulty meeting the financial requirements in a timely manner as AI was a student with limited income. On November 16th, 1992, I was notified that I had successfully completed the required DWI education and rehabilitation program.”
The RN failed to properly present and defend her case against the court. She was disciplined warning to a suspension of her LVN license by violating the Texas Board of Nursing regulation.
