In Texas, the government has created a special agency that has the jurisdiction to handle controversies and cases involving the nursing profession. This tribunal is called the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). Every RN or LVN subjected to a disciplinary proceeding or administrative case before the Board is given an opportunity to be heard and defend himself from all accusations. This every nurse with a pending case before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is to encourage hiring a nurse attorney.
Unfortunately, there are some RN and LVN who fail to find the right nurse attorney to handle their cases. As a result, most of them would be adjudged liable for the complaints. This usually leads to the revocation of a professional nursing license. This is what happened to an LVN in San Antonio, Texas.
On or about December 1, 2015, through March 20, 2018, an LVN from San Antonio, Texas practiced as a Vocational Nurse without a valid license. Board records indicate that her license expired on November 30, 2015, and was not renewed until March 20, 2018. Her conduct deceived residents, their families, fellow caregivers, and the public in that they believed the LVN’s nursing practice was in compliance with all Board Rules and Regulations.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to give her a fair chance to defend her case. She was given the chance to defend herself at the Board. In response, the LVN states she first apologizes for the late renewal. She may have thought she was up to date regarding her license or thought she was due the following year
However, the Texas Board of Nursing found her guilty for the complaint against her and her license was suspended. She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient San Antonio nurse attorney.
