Controlled Substances are illegal drugs. These are also used as prescription drugs that are regulated by the law.

So, it is best to seek help from a nurse attorney, before the worst can happen to your license and career.

The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN sufficient time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right RN/LVN nurse attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the RN/ LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to revoke the RN’s license.
