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. 


On or about June 18, 2015, an RN from El Paso submitted an Online Renewal Document to the Texas Board of Nursing in which she provided false, deceptive, and/or misleading information, in that she answered “No” to the question:

  • been convicted of a misdemeanor?
  • been convicted of a felony?
  • pled nolo contendere, no contest, or guilty?
  • received deferred adjudication?
  • been placed on community supervision or court-ordered probation, whether or not adjudicated guilty?
  • been sentenced to serve jail or prison time? court-ordered confinement?
  • been granted pre-trial diversion?
  • been arrested or have any pending criminal charges?
  • been cited or charged with any violation of the law?
  • been subject of a court-martial; Article 15 violation; or received any form of military judgment/punishment/action?”

The RN failed to disclose that, on or about March 31, 2014, she was convicted of DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED, a Class B misdemeanor offense, committed on July 16, 2011.

Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined warning to a suspension of her RN license by violating the Texas Board of Nursing regulation.
