Falsifying documents or information is a criminal act and could put you behind bars. For nurses to do such criminal acts, their career and nursing license will be put at risk. If you will be charged with such cases, the Board will summon you and subject you to disciplinary action or even worse than that, license revocation. But a Texas BON attorney on the other hand can help you get through such a situation.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Travel Nurse at a hospital in Allen, Texas, and had been in this position for one (1) year.
On or about April 2016, while providing pre-employment credentials to a Travel Company, the RN provided a falsified Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) card and a falsified Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACSL) card in that he wrote in falsified information on outdated American Heart Association cards. The RN’s conduct was likely to deceive the facilities that relied on the cards to verify his current certification, which was required for the position. ,
In response, the RN denies knowingly submitting fraudulent certifications, he states it is plausible that his instructor may have intentionally administered outdated certification cards, the RN states he was informed in April 2016 that his ACLS and PALS cards were not current. The RN states while seeking other employment, he contacted someone who could provide current ACLS and PALS courses and upon completing the courses, he was provided with electronically verifiable cards, which he provided to his subsequent employers.
As a result, the RN’s actions put her into disciplinary action by the Texas Board of Nursing. She failed to hire a Texas BON attorney to fully defend her case and has led to this decision by the Texas Board of Nursing. Hiring a Texas BON attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
