RN license or LVN license holder found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subject to a disciplinary case. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional RN / LVN in Texas. The complaint can be filed before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
The first case was about an RN who practiced nursing without RN license. On or about June 1, 2015, through May 23, 2017, while employed in a healthcare facility, the RN practiced her profession without a valid RN license. Board records indicate that Nurse’s license expired on May 31, 2015.
The RN admits to the allegation and states she inadvertently did not renew her RN license. She also states she stopped working on May 1, 2017, once she realized her RN license had lapsed. Due to this, the Texas BON disciplined and suspended the RN.
The second case was also about an RN who practiced nursing without a license. At the time of the initial incident, the RN and had been in that position for approximately four years.
On or about February 15, 2017, the RN submitted a Delinquent (Expired) License Renewal Form to the Texas Board of Nursing.
On or about March 1, 2013, through February 15, 2017, while still employed, the RN practiced nursing without a valid RN license. Board records indicate that her RN license expired on February 28, 2013, and was not renewed until February 15, 2017.
The RN said she was irresponsible by not keeping her RN license up to date and following all the steps in order to do so. She has moved three times in the past three years and she’s sure the reminder card was sent to one of the three addresses or was lost in the mail. As a result, the Texas BON disciplined and suspended the RN.
The practice of the nursing profession can become challenging and demanding all at the same time. An RN in Texas needs to follow several rules and regulations in order to prevent revocation of her RN license. The two cases mentioned above are some of the examples that any misconduct and gross negligence may put their RN license in danger.
Avoid the same thing from happening in your case. Make sure to take the necessary steps in dealing with a complaint filed before the Board against you or else, your RN license may be put in danger.
