    Once again: How much are they paying the RN in TX?
    Hospitals and Homehealth?
  2. by   Bortaz, RN
    There is no such thing as a "Texas payrate for RNs". Your question could only ever be answered in generalities. In fact, it has been answered in generalities a few dozen times over the last few weeks, on this very forum.

    I know, I know..... But I keep receiving different numbers.... TOO WAY DIFFERENT!

    That's because different cities, and different employers, offer different pay. You have to contact the employer to know what they offer.

    Does an LVN in Texas have to be "IV Certified". That is with a paper certificate for IV therapy/push for peripheral or central lines? Does anyone know if this is included in the Texas LVN programs? thanks

    I am looking for information regarding IV certification as well and where it can be obtained. I am currently enrolled with Excelsior College working toward my RN. I have been an LVN for >30 years and have worked at a medical management company for 8 years. I am thinking about going back into the clinical setting to improve my skills and some of the ads I've seen indicate the LVN needing to be IV certified. Anyone have info to share?

    Is the Bioterrorism CE requirement still needed for TX RNs? I keep researching and from what I'm finding, it seems that it is no longer needed.

    Thanks for any responses.

    Any 2nd degree BSN folks out there who moved to Texas for nursing school????

    I graduated several years back w/ my BS (Business Finance) and later, my JD. I should complete pre-reqs (pre-reqs required for most US accelerated programs) either this Summer or Fall 2009. However, I've read that TX schools will not allow students into their regular BSN programs if they haven't completed certain govt classes.

    Can anyone tell me if those govt classes are also REQUIRED pre-reqs for 'most' of the TX 2nd degree BSN programs?

    Thank you kindly.....

    I am interested in endorsing my RN license to TX. One of the requirements is to take a nursing jurisprudence examination. Can anyone please explain what that is? Thank you in advance.
