The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Killeen, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and three (3) months.
On or about March 16, 2018, an RN became noncompliant with the Confidential Agreed Order issued to her by the Texas Board of Nursing on August 11, 2016. Noncompliance is the result of the RN’s failure to comply with the requirements of the Texas Peer Assistance Program (TPAPN) participation agreement in that the RN missed four (4) drug tests when randomly selected on March 27, 2017, May 1 5, 2017, 13, 2019, and January 25, 2018. Stipulation Number 1, Section D. of the Agreed Order dated August 2016, states in pertinent part,
“RESPONDENI’ SHALL comply with all requirements of the TPAPN participation agreement during its term..”
On or about March 16, 2018, the RN was dismissed from TPAPN and referred back to the Board. In response, the RN neither denies nor admits. As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action, or revocation.
The RN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
