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.
