I became an RN in Texas in August, 2011. I moved overseas last year and have never worked as RN in States. My license expires in Sept, 2013 and I was wondering about continuing educations requirement. How many hrs of cont Ed do I have to complete to maintain my license? What other requirements to keep my license active and current? Any info is highly appreciated. Thanks,

If this is your very first renewal, you do not need to complete any CEUs.
I was looking on the Texas BON website for this as many people have mentioned. It states:
"A nurse newly licensed in Texas either by examination or endorsement from another state is exempt from the continuing nursing education requirement for the first licensure renewal period.14
A nurse's initial license may be valid for a period ranging from six (6) to 29 months, depending on the nurse's birth date. Following the first license renewal, the nurse must meet continuing competency requirements for all following licensure renewal periods."
