    What part of Texas? Check with the BNE for any regs on reciprocity. Do a search for Board of Nurse Examiners for the State of Texas. They handle both RN's and LPN's now.

    I recently moved to Texas from New York and had to pay two hundred dollars to switch my license over to Texas because New York isn't a Compact state. Sorry to inform you but neither is Michigan. If you go to the BNE Texas website (http://www.bne.state.tx.us/) you can transfer your license completely online except for the passport size picture and the two finger print cards for the back ground check. But by paying the fee online you can get your temporary license good for 120 days from date of issue very quickly and this will allow you to work while getting the need things together for the permanent license.

    Before anyone moves to Texas, you need to be aware that it is an "employment at will" state. That means you can be laid off for any reason whatsoever, or for no reason at all if your employer decides to do it. Most of Texas is strongly anti-union, so it's doubtful that you will find a strong union to help protect you.

    And, before moving to the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, be sure to do some research into what is known as "Group One."
