The Texas Board of Nursing handles the licensing and practice standards for all Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) actively working in Texas. If you are a licensed nurse and you receive a Notice of Disciplinary Action letter from the Texas Nursing Board you know you need serious assistance to protect you, your license, and your family's income through your job. The Board's Disciplinary Action page on their website has some guidance, but it is to your advantage to speak with someone familiar with the disciplinary process. Many nurses respond to the Board's letter without speaking to anyone and unfortunately dig themselves into deeper trouble. The right response can change the trajectory of your situation and propel you into a lesser offense category if not dispel the action altogether. Review the Disciplinary Matrix and this handy flowchart of the disciplinary process. Knowledge is key to understanding your situation and your options. Partney Law is standing by to guide you through this very difficult and trying time.
