Dishonesty, Fraud, And Deceit ~ Texas Board of Nursing (BON)
Nurses who practice in Texas have to “possess good professional character,” according to the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
If you’ve done something – or been accused of something – that could be viewed as “dishonesty,” “fraud,” or “deceit,” your ability to practice nursing could be impacted.
We are not talking about record-keeping errors that can sometimes happen in the course of a hectic workday – those won’t typically threaten your nurse’s license.
Examples of dishonesty, fraud, and deceit that could cause you to receive disciplinary action from the nursing board in Texas include:
- stealing patients’ money, property, valuables, medicine, or other items
- stealing from employers
- fraudulent behavior towards patients
- falsifying patient records
- billing fraud (Medicare, Medicaid, or other reimbursement programs)
- criminal behavior involving fraud, theft, or deception
- unethical, deceitful, or illegal conduct
- lying on a nursing license renewal or application
If you have questions about how dishonesty, fraud, or deceit could impact your license, or if you would like to schedule a free legal consultation, please call (503) 232-9280, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
