Her conduct created inaccurate medical records and was likely to injure the patient’s subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to further administer care to the patients.
On or about March 24, 2016, through April 19, 2016, the RN practiced as a Registered Nurse in violation of the Nurse Licensure Compact. She had previously established residency in the State of Texas but continued to use her Privilege to Practice from the State of Wisconsin after her temporary Texas license expired.
Regarding her conduct, the RN does not admit any wrongdoing and believes she has provided information that refutes the Board’s finding.
