License renewal question

  1. 0
    I just renewed my RN license for the first time. I did it online. Are they supposed to send me a new license/certificate/card that has the new expiration date on it? I renewed like 2 months ago and haven't heard or received anything since then.. I'm starting a new job this week and they need my current license.. getting kinda worried about this!!

    The state of Texas stopped issuing the wallet-sized licenses in September 2008. Therefore, you will not have "heard or received anything."

    Your new workplace should have already known that the Texas BNE no longer issues the wallet-sized licenses. If your new job would like to verify the status of your license, they will need to do it online.

    Thanks! And I'm sure my employer does know that.. I'm starting Monday and was just going by the email request to all new RNs for a current license. Good to know.

    I wasn't thrilled about this because my name changed and I barely made it in time to get a wallet license! I wish I could get a new big license to reflect the name change!
