    Hello,

    I am not military, *yet* but, a hopeful.

    The only thing that I do know is that as active duty the military requires you to have your license from *a* state. Not sure about as a civilian nurse.

    Good luck!
    Gen-p.s. the military nurses here respond with good information and promptly so, I am sure that you will have an informed answer soon

    What about a VA facility? Also - in TX there are many many military bases - you might try them.
