    funny this should show up... i just came off the texas bon site and was looking at the rn programs in texas... it is so very outdated some of those programs i know have been closed for at least 4-5 years... i personally have never had trouble with the bon but i don't doubt if i did what a mess it would be.... ive heard the horror stories....

    anyone else hate the tx bne?? they make me so sick. i am a new grad and i applied for licensure in tx way back in november. i just recently got approved to practice as a gn in texas, but now i am already a gn in another state. i received a letter from the bne saying that although they had approved my application before, i would need to send them an additonal $150 on top of everything else i had sent them!!! oh, and my entire application is now invalid because i am a gn in another state, so i have to apply for endorsement when i become licensed in the other state. :angryfire: this means more $$ in additon to the previous $$, and the new $$! i just don't understand it!

    i am also frustrated with their website. everything seems to directly contradict everything else on the website so far. and i can't even access the nurse practice act! how am i supposed to know the legal scope of practice for an rn in tx if i can't view the npa???

    anyway, just putting my vote in to abolish the tx bne

    thanks for letting me vent, and y'all have a good day.

    At least the TX BNE made it easy for me to renew my license online.
    I had to get fingerprinted, though. The place they sent me was miles away from my house and in an unmarked shed type of building in back of a house, that is some kind of home for kids. I had a hell of a time finding the place.

    The TX BNE...what a bunch of jerks IMHO.
    The Texas BNE's entire aim is to protect the public, and not the nurses it licenses.
