Attorney For Nurses In Texas: San Antonio
It can be extremely upsetting to receive a notice from the nursing board that someone has filed a complaint against you. Even if you were aware of an incident and knew that an allegation might be made, it can still be unnerving.
Few other occupations are as heavily regulated or monitored as nursing, and anyone can file a complaint with the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). Once that process begins, your nursing license could be at risk, as well as your current and future job opportunities.
Even though you might be tempted to just “want it all to go away,” the process can stretch out over months, and it is in your best interest to do everything you can to ensure the most favorable outcome.
One of the best steps you can take is to hire an experienced nurses attorney. While you can represent yourself or engage another type of attorney, there are benefits to working with an attorney who understands nursing and has negotiated with (and gone up against) the nursing board.
