The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations as well as charged with the criminal cases may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by a criminal nurse attorney.
One of the best examples is an RN in El Paso who was sentenced to 5 years in prison after police authorities accused her of embezzling a huge amount of money from an El Paso nonprofit that distributed funds to disabled residents.
When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing ( BON), 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 (BON) regulation.
