Question about TX BON application

  1. 0
    On the online application for licensing it gets to a part where it asks for you to list up to 30 states you would want to practice in. Why and what does that mean as far as the license goes?

    I've endorsed my license into the state of Texas twice (LVN/2006 and RN/2010) and have never encountered that question on any of their applications for licensing. It seems bizarre and I honestly would not know the reasoning behind that question.

    Wouldn't have anything to do with Texas being a compact state, would it? I don't know if there are even that many states involved in the compact license agreement anyways. Just a wild guess on my part.

    As of this date, 24 states are members of the Nursing Licensure Compact.

    My guess is that this information is aggregated and used to plan & predict which compact states are most appealing to Texas grads.... I doubt whether it has any bearing on your individual eligibility or approval.
