    Do you plan to work and practice in TX as your first nursing job upon passing the NCLEX-RN? If so, then, go for it.

    But if you plan to endorse or transfer in another different state, then you will still to meet that real desired state's requirements. This will increase your cost (in terms of paying for the necessary for any English exam and pass plus fees if your courses needs to be evaluated) AND not to mention extra time wasted waiting and waiting waiting extra months for the positive results.

    Endorsing into a concurrency enforcement State will be even more waste of time and money and any fees submitted to any BON is non-refundable, even if rejected or denied.

    You can read of all the disappointments and frustrations so many PH nurses and grads are having trying to do this "state hopping" around, it doesn't work and it's caused two States so far to change their minimum requirements due to possible and numerous movements they are seeing in recent months.

    As an example: NV recently required any international applicant to submit a copy of their local and country's RN license early this year. NM now requires some kind of form statement that if you obtain a RN in their state you will keep it there for 5 years and you sign a statement to that effect. It will ask what your plans are, how long to you plan to stay, what country are you from, etc.

    hi, one of my friends called new york and new jersey Board of Nursing just last week for inquiries about their requirements then unfortunately, they started to add the requirements that the california and the other 12 states have... (just sharing) so that means there are 15 states that have the same concurrency issues...
    Is this true or just rumors? I think both States are still passing the ATT without any problems as of this present time, but it wouldn't surprise me if either BON decided to start the enforcement some time this year.

    Hi Troi, just want to confirm so the TX BON did'nt require you to take english test? I am thinking of applying to TX too and move there if given a chance i read that you already received your ATT so meaning there is concurrency issue with them? thanks for your post! and to this site Will definitely start the process now.. and hopefully i will get a good news too!
