A nurse in Texas is being prosecuted after reporting a physician she worked with to the local medical board for allegedly performing unauthorized surgical procedures.

The case is attracting attention from state and national nursing associations that worry if the nurse is found guilty, it will prevent others from coming forward to report unsafe and shoddy medicine.

Watch the story below and let us know what you think. Should she be prosecuted?
