Any type of accusations or criminal case can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding criminal cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
Criminal cases are a must to be observed properly not only by the Board but by a nurse attorney. An example of this happened to an RN in Dallas when she was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for her participation in a ring that distributed methamphetamine of high purity.
The RN has a bachelor’s degree in nursing and a master’s degree in psychology and came from a well-to-do family.
But the 44-year old RN became a victim of her own addiction — she liked meth so much she let her posh Spring Branch home become a drug den and distribution “store.
She also defied court orders to stay away from the drug while out on bail, causing her bond to be revoked.
The RN was nabbed in September 2013 by U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents, after a raid at her home in Spring Branch, records show. The probe included undercover buys of methamphetamine, with the purity of roughly 98 percent.
During the search, agents seized 5 ounces of meth, the affidavit said.
When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the RN states that everything was just an accusation. However, without valid reason and defense to properly explain the RN’s side, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN’s license into disciplinary action.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
