The Texas Board of Nursing has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nurses in Texas. Any license holder found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subject to a disciplinary case, if not defended by a nurse attorney. The complaint can be filed before the Texas Board of Nursing.
In this case, an LVN practiced nursing without her license. On or about July 19, 2016 through March 23, 2018, while employed in a nursing care center in Edinburgh, the LVN practiced her profession without a valid license. Board records indicate that her license expired on May 1, 2015.
The LVN admits to the accusation and states she inadvertently did not renew her license. The LVN also stated that she was irresponsible by not keeping her license up to date and following all the steps in order to do so. She also states she stopped working on March 23, 2018 upon realizing her license had lapsed. Due to this, the Texas BON disciplined and suspended the RN.
The practice of the nursing profession can become challenging and demanding all at the same time. An LVN in Texas needs to follow several rules and regulations in order to prevent revocation of her license. The case mentioned above is just one of the many examples that any misconduct and gross negligence may put their license in danger.
Avoid the same thing from happening in your case. Make sure to take the necessary steps in dealing with a complaint filed before the Board against you or else, your license may be put in danger.
