I have Florida License... want a Texas license

  1. Hi All
    Will I be able to get a License by Endorsement from Texas? I am thinking of relocating to south Texas and am in the process of reactivating my Florida license which I stupidly let lapse a few years ago. I continue to maintain my ON license and work full-time as a staff RN.

    You should be able, HOWEVER, don't forget about having to complete the Visa Screen process, even if you are on a NAFTA visa. This law goes into effect in July. If you are not aware of the requirements, you can see them on www.CGFNS.org Good luck!

    the Texas Board is called the Board of Nurse Examiners. Check out their site:
    www.bne.state.tx.us.

    Also, check on this site to see if Florida is a compact state. I know that Texas is. If Fl.is compact you can work in TX on a FL license.

    welcome to Texas!

    Thanks for the info. I was unaware of the Visa Screen requirement. Something else to check into. Unfortunately, Florida is not a compact state, so I will have to go through the licensure process.
