The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.

On or about May 12, 2014, an LVN from El Paso submitted an online renewal document to the Texas Board of Nursing in which he provided false, deceptive, and/or misleading information in that he answered “No” to the following question:

“Have you, within the past 24 months or since your last renewal, for any criminal offense, including those pending appeal:

A. been convicted of a misdemeanor?

B. pled nolo contendere, no contest, or guilty?

C. been placed on community supervision or court-ordered probation, whether or not adjudicated guilty?”

However, the LVN failed to disclose that on or about July 17, 2012, she was convicted of DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED, a Class B misdemeanor offense committed on or about November 19, 2010.

Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing. During the defense, she states that she did not intend to purposefully mislead the Board. Per her attorney’s advice, she clicked no to the questions.

Although the LVN admit the offense she made, the lack of evidence and expert nurse attorney to defend her led to the Board of Nursing decision to suspend and discipline her license.

This is just one of the many cases why every nurse in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. Gross negligence, disobedience or any form of offense on the part of a RN or LVN is never excused.

Any type of accusations 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 cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.

The LVN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
