Taralynn M. Registered Nurse

Austin, Texas
I am an attorney and a registered nurse. I represent nurses before the Texas Board of Nursing and because of that, I see the issues that impact nurses and wanted to find a way to educate nurses about these issues.  So, I now have three blogs available to help nurses.

is diversion the same as a consent agreement?  my consent agreement was investigated (we think, poorly done) and straight mistruths were typed up for me to sign and notorize.  i couldnt swear or notorize any such document.  my attorney told me to "suck it up" and sign it and move forward.  this was against my ethics.  i will not sign or consent to a agreement that is embellished, please help.

Ms. Taralynn:

My name is Sheila Kohl.  I am currently a student at the University of Missouri - Kansas City in the RN to BSN program. 

I have an assignment that I hope you might be able to help me with.  The question is:

 Contact a nurse attorney and inquire as to what are some of the commmon legal issues the nurse attorney deals with in legal practice, the outcomes of those legal issues and what nurses can do to avoid malpractice lawsuits. 

I will be sharing your answers with the rest of my class and the answer can be relatively short.

Can you help me with this? If so, please email me at,
