Being charged with a DWI is embarrassing, expensive and stressful. But if you are a nurse who has been convicted of a DWI while you were off duty, then the stakes are even higher. Your livelihood could be at risk.
Anytime a LVN or RN faces a disciplinary proceeding with Texas Board of Nursing (BON), he or she should immediately contact an attorney who is well-versed in the processes and professionals involved. With your license in jeopardy, you cannot afford to take on the matter alone or with someone who is not qualified to help you.
Nurses have one of the most difficult jobs on the planet. They selflessly care for the sick and injured, working long hours with few breaks or down time. The profession is made even more difficult when a nurse faces a Texas Board of Nursing (BON) disciplinary proceeding, which can threaten the nurse's license and livelihood.
