As an RN in Texas, the first thing that you need to do is to comply with all the laws promulgated by the legislative department of the government. Take note that your nursing license can be taken away from you for failure to comply with certain state laws. As a matter of fact, the nursing license can even be revoked with finality with the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). When this happens, it means that you will lose your privilege to practice as a LVN or RN nurse.
The mistaken view of most nurses is that their nursing licenses can only be affected if their offense or violation is related to their profession. However, this is not the case because even if an LVN or RN nurse will be subjected to a criminal case, one of the possible penalties that can be imposed is the cancellation of his nursing registration.
This is what happened in the case of Glemarie who is an RN nurse in Texas. On or about January 26, 2010, while employed with the hospital, the RN nurse failed to administer Rochepin and Vancomycin, both Antibiotics, to a particular patient. This was a clear violation of the order of the medical doctor. The patient was admitted with a possible infection on the urinary system. The conduct of the RN nurse was likely to harm the patient from delayed treatment of the infection. This was not the first time that she committed a wrongdoing.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) declared that the act of the RN nurse Glemarie was unbecoming of a nurse. She placed the life of her patient in great danger. It could have led to a serious medical complication or even death. For this reason, the Texas BON ordered for the suspension of the license of the RN nurse.
