Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs): Professional License Defense


If you’re an LVN or LPN 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.

If you are a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) who has had a complaint filed against you, we can help! If you are a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who is a traveling nurse and/or is working in Texas under the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), we can also help.

We assist LVNs and LPNs with all aspects of the nursing license defense process, from the initial investigation by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) to the final resolution.

Whether you’re working for a private practice, medical clinic, hospital, nursing home, or home health agency, any disciplinary sanction by the nursing board can potentially impact your nursing career for years to come.
