Professor under investigation resigns from state association

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Texas Nurses Association said Friday morning that a Lubbock professor who is under investigation resigned his elected position as Vice President on June 30th.

Rod Hicks Ph.D. was to have officially started as TNA Vice President on July 1st. The association quotes Hicks as saying he "took a position out of state" but he did not say specifically where. TNA says in order to serve as an elected official the office holder must live in Texas.

Hicks lost his professorship of the Endowed Chair For Patient Safety on June 24th from the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center. The HSC did so at the written request of University Medical Center, which put up the money for the endowed chair in 2008.

The HSC refuses to say whether or not Hicks is still employed but his faculty web page and many other pages pertaining to him have been removed from the HSC web site. A Texas Tech police report pertaining to Hicks mentions "inappropriate Internet Instant Messages" but police refuse to elaborate.
