The Board of Nursing in Texas (BON) licenses nurses and ensures that they are competent to practice nursing safely, according to the tenets of the Nurse Practice Act. Each year, more than 16,000 complaints about nurses come into the Texas nursing board. If there’s enough information in the complaint, and that the allegation falls within the board’s scope, the BON opens an investigation.
If you've received a notice from the board of an allegation against you, you’re probably concerned, and rightfully so! Even if the incident seems minor, what happens from here can have a lasting impact on your nursing career, which is why it can be beneficial to have a lawyer by your side.
We can help you through all of the phases of the investigation and resolution, including negotiations of disciplinary sanctions from the board.
We can help with BON issues arising from:
- licensure fees
- failure to comply with continuing education requirements
- expired nursing license
- substance abuse (drugs and alcohol)
- DUI and DWI, as well as other criminal arrests
- dishonesty, fraud, and deceit
- violation of boundaries
- sexual misconduct
- falsification or errors on documents
