Upon investigation, the RN was found guilty and was reprimanded by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) due to the felony offense that the RN had committed. The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN the chance to defend herself. However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the evidence was brought up to her.
As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her license on disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a nurse attorney in San Antonio for assistance if she had every reason to defend herself in the first place. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas nurse attorney as well.
