A nurse attorney can provide utmost assistance to RNs and LVNs even when they received a violation for working with an expired license. This is what happened to an LVN who was based in Fort Worth, Texas who managed to use her expired license during her work.
Between the dates of September 1, 2014, to April 25, 2017, the LVN practiced her duties without using any valid license. According to the Texas Board of Nursing, her license already expired on August 31, 2014. The Board also found out that her license was renewed only on April 25, 2017.
The result of her actions may have likely deceived the hospital, residents, caregivers, doctors, the pharmacy, patients, and the public as she performed her duties. They apparently believed that she is performing her duties in compliance with the rules and regulations of the Texas Board of Nursing.
The LVN received a letter from the Board to summoner for a hearing. The LVN was given a chance before the Board to defend her side in the case. She stated that she did not intend to not renew her license. In fact, she mentioned that she renewed her license on August 9, 2014, but failed to present the CEUs needed by the Board.
Therefore, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her LVN license into disciplinary action. The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who handles all the cases regarding suspension, disciplinary action, and revocation of an LVN or RN license. This is why a nurse attorney is strongly advised for nurses who will attend a hearing to defend their respective cases.
