HENDERSONVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Hendersonville nurse accused of handing out prescription drugs to teenagers is set to appear in court Wednesday morning.

The serious accusations against Sandra Jackson involve her allegedly giving teenagers thousands of addictive pain pills so they could sell them.

Police said they found more than 100 of those pills inside Jackson's home last month after they responded to a call about a fight. Most of the drugs were used to treat anxiety.

Several teens were seen running from the home, including a 17-year-old girl who reportedly lives there.

A search warrant revealed a bong, a glass pipe and cut straw with white power inside the home.

This is not the first time Jackson has been in trouble. In 2015, her state nursing license was suspended because of an earlier incident at her weight loss clinic where she was selling pills to people without doing an exam.

She is currently licensed as an advanced practice registered nurse, but her license is on probation, meaning she can only practice under special conditions in Tennessee.

Jackson's hearing is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. in Sumner County.
