Nursing License Revocation ~ Texas Board of Nursing (BON)
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) issues nursing licenses, which allow nurses to practice in the state of Texas, and it also can revoke those licenses.
The revocation of a nursing license is the most drastic disciplinary action that the nursing board can take, and, generally, it’s only imposed in extreme circumstances.
The Texas BON could revoke a nursing license if:
- a nurse doesn’t comply with terms of suspension, probation, or enforced suspension
- a nurse is on probation or practicing on a limited license but doesn’t respond to communication from the board
- a nurse’s violations of the Nurse Practice Act (NPA) were particularly egregious, such as theft of controlled substances, gross negligence, or gross incompetence
- the nurse’s license was restricted or revoked in another state
- the nurse is arrested for or convicted of crimes
Losing your nursing license could signal the end of your nursing career. If you’re in this situation, please call our law office immediately.
You have the right to an attorney in all of your interactions with the board of nursing, and you also have the right to appeal your license revocation.
If you have questions about your nursing license being revoked, or if you would like to schedule a free legal consultation, please call (503) 232-9280, or e-mail email@example.com.
