The disciplinary process for nurses in Texas

The disciplinary process for nurses in Texas may begin with a letter of self-report or may be initiated at the request of a patient, supervisor or coworker. Alternatively, an employer may request an investigation into nurse misconduct based upon other circumstances, such as obvious impairment or criminal charges.

A streaming video,Board of Nursing Complaint Process: Investigation to Resolution, has been developed by the National Council State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) 2010 Disciplinary Resource Committee and produced by NCSBN. The video is intended for nurses facing disciplinary action and provides a high level overview on the topics:

  • The board of nursing investigation process;
  • Due process rights;
  • Formal and informal administrative hearings; and
  • Types of resolutions.

Once a complaint is filed with a board of nursing, the boards have a complaint process that they follow from review to resolution. This process is summarized in the NCSBN video Board of Nursing Complaint Process: Investigation to Resolution. This video was developed by the NCSBN 2010 Disciplinary Resource Committee and produced by NCSBN.
