    Hello, first of all do you live outside the US?If you are licensed to other state and wish to be licensed in Texas just go to this site https://www.bon.texas.gov/applications_endorsement.asp

    It includes steps for license endorsement. If you are in the US, you can apply for an online application, but if not then you need to print out the forms and mail it back to Texas Board of Nursing once completed. Hope this helps.

    Which particular aspect of the endorsement are you confused of?
    First of, if you live outside the USA, you need to download the endorsement application form, Verification form and Fast pass form on their site. You have to send the license endorsement application form with the check of $186 to Austin Texas.
    Secondly, go to PRC (because I assume that you are from the Philippines) and give them the Verification form. The PRC will send directly the verification to Texas,just pay the necessary fee and of course provide accurate information and mailing address.
    Regarding you license verification for Vermont, just visit nursys.com

    Just visit nursys.com and click the state that you want to licensed, you need to have a credit card to finish this process,and the fee is around $30.(kindly check nursys for the exact fee).. However, you can also use Verification form in case you do not have a credit card and send it to Vermont with the corresponding payment.

    Lasly, request for a finger print card for the Board of Nursing or US embassy,have it printed at NBI. Register to identogo which has a contact number located in the Fast pass form.After the registration, you can send the card with the fast pass form to Morpho trust USA

    You can check your application status on their site as soon as they receive your application.Afterwards, you can take the online examination once you completed the requirements or once your temporary license has been issued.I hope you find this helpful. Goodluck!

    thanks sir stan for the inputs.
    regarding with verification of license from vermont via nursys, will it be an office to office communication?

    Yes, just pay the necessary fee. It is faster and more convenient for you.

    Sir how about the CES and NJE in what part of the process i should accomplish it?
  10. by   stanpogi
    CES is applicable if you are an LPN not for RN.

    sir when did you had an endorsement to texas i believe you had a vt license before. ces is stated as a requirement, if you may see they have a 17 page forms for the endorsement such a lengthy and confusing.

    can i still qualify for endorsement i did my nclex rn exam 5 years ago(2009).

    International Candidates - you will need the following:
    1. Each of these:
      1. all fees
      2. a completed criminal history report
      3. an original Credential Evaluation Service (CES) Full Education course-by-course report sent directly from an approved organization. The Board accepts the CES from any one of these:
        • the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) www.cgfns.org
        • the Educational Records Evaluation Service, Inc. (ERES)www.eres.com, or the
        • the International Education Research Foundation, Inc. (IERF) www.ierf.org.
          Note: The CES must be dated within one year of issuanceby the certification organization and is required for LVN endorsement only.

    It states that it is only required for LVN endorsement. Kindly check this site https://www.bon.texas.gov/licensure_...ment.asp#paper

    I also applied for endorsement last August, and just now waiting for the permanent license.

    sir can you correct me if i am wrong with my checklist:

    -application form + $186 bank draft
    -PRC VOL
    -VT VOL
    -Fingerprint card / fast pass

    How long did you wait and what branch did you request for PRC VOL? did you facilitate the express mailing to texas?
    I also would like to know your steps for the fingerprinting.
