    Hi! I just want to verify some details in filling-out the Endorsement Form of Texas BON. There's a space there for writing all your licenses. However since I did not get a license from CA-BON since I do not have a SSN, should I still write something there or just leave it blank?

    For those of you who endorsed your Ca license to Texas. What happens to your Ca license? Do you have to surrender it once you get a Texas license?

    hi!pls help me. I passed nclex last May 2009, its 3 yrs and 9months now. i just want to clarify if im still eligible to endorse it to texas. i learned from bon texas that 1 requirement is to pass nclex exam, which i already have. what's confusing to me is the another requirement of bon texas stating that you must be practicing or if not you took or passed the appropriate RN exam during the past 4yrs. which exam are they talking about? the Philippine board exam or the CA nclex exam. because i passed the local board exam last june2008, its more than four years now. and i dont know if that's the required one. But if they mean the Nclex exam, mine is just more than 3 yrs now. am i still eligible to endorse it or not? pls help me.

    I'm a CA NCLEX passer without SSN.I will endorse it to Texas. I'm confused regarding the requirements I have to send to texas. I have to write CA BON for verification of licensure and ask to forward it to Texas. Could I submit my application to Texas even without the Verification of licensure from CA because CA BON will be the one to send it to Texas? Do I need to write Texas BON that I already request CA to send my VOL to them so that's why it's not included in the application that I would send to TX?

    For all those wondering if they are able to endorse "expired" pass letters/test results frim CA BON to TX BON, it is indeed possible! I took and passed the NCLEX in Oct 2007 and when my file expired I gave up on it coz I did not think it was possible to endorse the results anymore. But just a couple of months ago I started researching and thought to myself that I should just go and try my luck. So I filled up the necessary documents and passed all the requirements, and thru God's goodness I recieved my Texas license number (at least online, I have yet to recieve the paper license i the mail) last May 1, only two months since I sent all the documents. This forum has been very helpful and contains almost all the information needed in the endorsement process. But its always best to contact Texas BON directly if you are unsure of what to do coz they would know how best to advise you. Like when I read that a requirement was that the NCLEX must have been taken 4 yrs prior to endorsement unless practicing/working as a nurse I emailed TX BON and asked if my recent hospital experience here in the Philippines and abroad would be considered and they replied yes it would. So I send a notarized copy of my employment certificates along with the application form. I hope all of you are also successful in endorsing your results! :-)

    hi guys if that is true im one of the nurses planning to endorse my nclex to texas.
    That they dont require CES.SSN?
    and i just like to asked together with the form of endorsement is fingerprint and payment of 200 dollar how about Picture of passport size is it also a requirement?hope for youre response



    *****************

    yeah, endorsing the license is really easy.
    yes, they don't require ces and ssn for the endorsement of license.
    you don't need the picture really. all you need for the endorsement is the filled-out endorsement form of texas, the $200 check, the letter from your original state stating you passed your NCLEX exam, the fingerprint card as well. and that's it...

    OK, I know this a "blast from the past" but may be some folks could chime in.

    I'm also foreign-educated nurse who's been living in US almost for the past 25 years. I passed my NCLEX back in 1993 in NY where I practiced for the 20 years. I also have active NJ RN lic by endorsement. We recently moved to Texas and I'm in the process of obtaining RN license via endorsement. So far so good. Both of my RN lic from NY and NJ were endorsed via NURSYS service. I had my livescan finger prints done (though it still shows as pending on TX BON website). I also passed TX BON juriceprudence exam.


    But here's my question. There is one more item shows as "required" when I check my application status online: It says "lisensure Russia". ??? I never claimed to have any foreign license. All my nursing career for the past 20 years has been right here in USA?

    I was born and raised in USSR (Russia), also my initial nursing ed was done there, but I've never been licensed in Russia or worked thereas a nurse . I actually have left that country within one month after graduation from nursing school. In all fairness, I haven't contacted TX BON yet, but just wanted to hear if someone else had same/similar situation? I know when I endorsed my NY RN license to NJ they did not ask me about foreign "license" b/c this has never been part of my app, neither it it is for TX BON?

    Your feedback is much appreciated.

    Hello, I'm a new graduate nurse who is seeking to endorse his CA license to TX and I have a couple questions about the process. I've tried calling their phone # but I've been unsuccessful all week. The closest I was able to get was waiting on hold for an hour before my call was dropped.

    I've been to the TX BON website and have printed out the Endorsement Application for RNs and the Application for a six month temporary permit. I also have printed the verification of RN licensure form.

    The temporary permit is the first step in the process according to the "temp app" and allows the individual to begin the refresher course, etc.
    My questions are: when do they send me the temporary license in this process? Before the refresher course or after?
    I've also been unable to find much about the offered refresher courses; does this information get sent to me after I've sent in the temporary license packet?

    Sorry, its just a little confusing going back and forth between these three packets.

    Thank you for any advice or help you can offer!

    I know this post is so old. I'm in the process of endorsement from California to texas since I got a job offer there. I think they said it takes 6-8 weeks. The person you may want to contact is Sandra.Gardner@bin.texas.gov. email her and see where your application is during the process. Hope this helps.

    Hi, can someone who have recently endorsed their licence shine a light on how long does it take to get your license.

    I applied for endorsement from CA to TX on 3/2/14, paid the $186 app fee the same day via credit card. I got a letter with my TX temporary license number on it two weeks later, valid till 07/2014.

    I sent the verification form and a $60 check to CA BON on 3/3/14, tracking said it was received on 3/14/14. As of today they have yet to cash my check. CA website says to allow 8-10 weeks for processing the verification form which is why I am waiting and not trying to hassle them by contacting them. Does it really takes that long because I am apparently impatient?

    I did my fingerprints via print card which cost $20 and sent the two copies out with a $41.45 check to MorphoTrust USA on Hollis Drive as indicated on 3/18/14. As of today my check has not been cashed. I plan to call them tomorrow regarding the processing.

    I took and passed the state Jurisprudence Exam on 3/18. So now I am just waiting for my license. How long is each process for those who have recently done this and when can I get my license? Thanks anyone who replies.

    hi, i gave my NCLEX through ca BON -may 2009, i didn't get Ca RN licence as i didn't have SSN. Now, my file is expired. I moved to Kentucky recently from India, i was wondering if i could transfer my NCLEX pass letter from CA to Kentucky. How did you approach CA BON for this?? I emailed CA BON twice but didn't get any reply so far. Can you please share how things work out with CA BON. Did you send VOL too or just a request for the NCLEX report?? Please help!!
