Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs): Professional License Defense


If you’re an Advanced Practice Nurse who has concerns about your nursing license, call to schedule a free legal consultation with a nurses attorney, (512) 829-5619. Note that the free consultation is ONLY for professional licensing matters.

As an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN), you worked hard to get to where you are today, and if your license is in jeopardy – in any way – it could have far-reaching impact on your job prospects, career, and earnings for years to come.

Even if the incident, allegation, or proposed discipline from the board seems minor, it can become part of public record and limit your ability to practice in Texas and beyond.

If you are currently being investigated by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON), or are facing license discipline and/or restrictions, we can help!
