Excelsior's web site has not been updates as of yet, but House Bill 2950 was passed this last legislative session and signed into law in June; it goes into effect in September.
As a part of this bill, Excelsior College will continue to be recognized by the State of Texas as a valid School of Nursing and can be directly licensed after graduation and passage of the NCLEX.
This bill basically lays out requirements for out of state nursing schools (pretty much Excelsior). There are some things that need to be met (NCLEX pass rate will be monitored and program reviewed if too low), but it seems that Excelsior and Texas is all happy again.
There are several items set out in this bill related to nursing (like keeping the BON in existence till at least 2029) as well as updating some Nurse Licensure Compact updates to name a few.
