The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the power to suspend or revoke the license of any nurse in the state. Any disciplinary action by the BON must be taken very seriously because it can interfere with your ability to earn a living and leave a permanent black mark on your professional history.
Why Your Nursing License May be Revoked
You may not be aware that what you do when you are not at your place of work can affect the status of your license. A nurse in Texas recently had her license revoked for being convicted of a misdemeanor offense of driving while intoxicated. The BON took into account the facts surrounding her criminal charges as a reason to take away her license. This incident serves as a sobering example of how you need to treat any criminal charges brought against you very seriously if you want to be able to practice nursing in Texas.
If you are a nurse who has been charged with any crime in Texas, you should contact a nurse defense attorney as soon as possible. Beyond whatever penalties you may face in a criminal trial, you will have to take quick steps to make sure that your license is protected after you have resolved your criminal case.
