Can anyone tell me how to know if an NP program has the proper accreditation in order for me to practice in Texas. The Texas BON says a nationally recognized certification. I would like to go to either the program online via So. Mississippi or So. Alabama as they are the most cost effective for me. I was not able to find any other information and they do not have a list of the approved programs that I could locate online. I was hoping to avoid a phone call to the board. I am hoping to begin a program within a year.
