The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by Fort Worth attorneys. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
A perfect example of this incident happened to a nurse in Fort Worth.
On or about February 28, 2007, the RN submitted a Texas Online Renewal Document to the Board of Nurse Examiners in which she provided false, deceptive, and/or misleading information, in that she answered “No” to the question:
“Have you ever been convicted, placed on community supervision whether or not adjudicated guilty, sentenced to serve jail or prison time or granted pre-trial diversion, or plead guilty, no contest or nolo contendere to any crime in any state, territory or country, or received a court order whether or not a sentence was imposed, including any pending criminal charges or unresolved arrests whether or not on appeal (excluding minor Class C traffic violations)? This includes expunged offenses and deferred adjudications with or without a finding of guilt. Please note that DUIS, DWIs, and Pls must be reported and are not considered minor traffic violations. One time in possession [MIP] or minor in consumption [MIC] does not need to be disclosed; therefore, you may answer “No.” If you have two or more MIPs or MICs, you must answer “Yes.” You may answer “No” if you have previously disclosed a criminal matter otherwise responsive to this question in a renewal and/or licensure form.”
The RN failed to disclose that, on or about November 29, 2005, she entered a plea of Nolo Contendere to and was convicted of THEFT BY CHECK, a misdemeanor offense, committed on December 16, 2004,
Because of this, the RN was given the chance to ghear her side of the story.
However, without valid evidence and expert Fort Worth attorneys to defend her, the RN was suspended and disciplined.
Any case can be defended, as long as there are skilled Fort Worth attorneys ready to assist you during the hearing before the Texas Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
The RN lost the case simply because she failed to find effective and efficient Fort Worth attorneys. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
