Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a right nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
On or about September 25, 2017, an LVN from El Paso provided inaccurate and misleading information when she submitted an Endorsement Application for Registered Nurses in the State of Texas and answered “No” to the following question:
“Are you currently the target or subject of a grand jury or governmental agency investigation?”
The LVN failed to disclose she was under investigation and had a pending matter before the State Board of Nursing.
Her conduct was deceptive and may have affected the Board’s decision to issue a professional nursing license.
During the defense, the LVN states her violation of the Nursing Practice Act was not willful. She further states she was unaware at the time that the conduct for which she was disciplined was prohibited. The LVN states she satisfied the terms of the agreement and her license is active and unencumbered.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
