The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any Registered Nurse or Licensed Vocational Nurse found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations as well as charged with the criminal case may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by a criminal nurse attorney.
One of the best examples is a Registered Nurse in San Antonio who was sentenced to 10 years in prison after police authorities accused her of embezzling nearly $1 million from a San Antonio nonprofit that distributed funds to disabled residents.
When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the RN failed to properly present and defend her case against the court. The 41-year-old RN pleaded no contest in March to misapplication of fiduciary property-more than $200,000, a first-degree felony.
Although the RN denied her probation request, she retained jurisdiction of the case, meaning she could possibly be released on shock probation within six months.
She was disciplined by violating the Texas Board of Nursing regulation.
Avoid a similar thing from happening on your end. Make sure to find the right criminal nurse attorney in case a complaint will be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
Having all these problems was never easy and should never be dealt with alone. You need someone who can help you at times like these, someone that is very reliable and knows what to do if you are facing such allegations or accusations. Any problem always has a solution.
