If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit license mistakes or issues.
On or about June 07, 2017, an RN from Austin submitted a Texas Online Renewal Document in which she provided false, deceptive, and/or misleading information, in that she answered “No” to the question:
“Have you, within the past 24 months or since your last renewal, for any criminal offense, including those pending appeal:
A. been arrested and have any pending criminal charges?
B. been convicted of a Misdemeanor?
C. been convicted of a felony?
D. pled nolo contendere, no contest, or guilty?
E. received deferred adjudication?
F. been placed on community supervision or court-ordered probation, whether or not adjudicated guilty?
G. been sentenced to serve jail or prison time? court-ordered confinement?
H. been granted pre-trial diversion?
I. been cited or charged with any violation of the law?
J. 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 May 16, 2016, she was arrested for POSS CS PG ILESS THAN 1 Gram, a State Jail felony offense committed on March 28, 2015. Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side.
During the hearing, the RN states, she does not deny that she pled No Contest to the underlying charges, and received deferred adjudication. She advised that at some point, she emailed a letter to the Nursing Board to let the Board know of the pending charges. As for failing to disclose the deferred adjudication, she advised that she answered No on her 2017, renewal on the advice of an attorney.
An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
