In Texas, the government has created a special agency that has the jurisdiction to handle controversies and cases involving the nursing profession. This tribunal is called the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). Every RN or LVN subjected to a disciplinary proceeding or administrative case before the Board is given an opportunity to be heard and defend himself from all accusations. This every nurse with a pending case before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is to encourage hiring a good nurse attorney.

At the time of the incident, she was employed as an RN with a hospice care provider in Pharr, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) month.

On or about October 26, 2018, through November 8, 2019, while employed as an RN with a hospice care provider in Pharr, Texas, RN practiced professional nursing without a valid license. Board records indicate that RN’s license was SUSPENDED on October 25, 2018, through a Board Order. RN’s conduct deceived patients, their families, fellow caregivers, and the public in that they believed RN’s nursing practice was in compliance with all Board’s Rules and Regulations.

In response, RN states she is disappointed by the choices that have led her to this point. RN states the last two years have been extremely overwhelming personally and it has caused chaos and disruption in her professional life. RN states she applied with the facility in September 2018 and was hired a few days later. RN states she was always under the impression that any business that had nurses employed was reporting to the board at some type of interval and that licenses were checked often by Human Resources when titles and roles changed and during evaluations. RN states a few months after working there, she was promoted to management and into the role of educator for all disciplines within Pharr’s office. RN stated she stopped checking the TBON website because she was so distracted by all the health issues her family members were having. RN states it was never her intention to deceive anyone.

The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(1)&(10), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(6)(H)&(11)(B).

The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN sufficient time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right RN/LVN license attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the RN/LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to place the RN’s license under disciplinary action.
