I am a RPN from Ontario Canada ,moved to Texas 5 years ago and Texas did not accept my Nursing license. So I applied via New York State ,(it took almost 2 years to have all my credientials verified)
Passed the NCLEX-PN Excam May 3rd and got my license MAY 8th......now I want to change my New York License to Texas ,so I can finnally practice in Texas.
Now here is my Question :
Has anyone out there done this before . I went to the Texas Vocational Nurses website downloaded the endorsement application ,but it looks like I again have to send ALLL MY original Information from Canada ,going directly to CANADA.
I was wondering if Texas Does not accept NEW YORK LPN License..
Calling the LVN BOARD is like pulling teeth ..it rings busy all the time...

:angryfire its extremly
hard to contact the board in Texas...no one has an email listed ...and via phone is an impossibel task ..I even tried a complaint line...which is automated ..lol...
well I am sending off my papers ..maybe I am anyways jumping the gun ...maybe "compartable' means not exact but similar..
I was just HOPING anyone out there did it before me..
and maybe knew something I did not know or give me some pointers...
Maybe it does count a lot passing the NCLEX...isn't it the same for the whole of USA???????
Maybe it counts having a license in another state since apparently the licensure requierements are similar in New York ...to TEXAS....
I am just wondering ...because I was told that Texas usually accepts NEW YORK license and gives endorsements for it ...
WELL LETS SEE ...all I can do is WAIT AND HOPE AND THEN KNOW ...when I get the answer ..
SURE was HOPING someone out there has done it before me.........
