Section 301.452(b)(1)&(10), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN the chance to defend herself. However, she was not able to provide a good defense from a nurse attorney for herself. Therefore, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) placed her RN license to a disciplinary action instead.
