Specializes in LTC.

I'm a student practical nurse in kansas. My hubby would like to eventually move to a warmer climate due to health problems. What is it like there?

Also, how does an LPN from KS become an LVN in TX? And what is the pay like for beginning LVNs in that area?

:rolleyes: I would contact the board in Austin. I don't think you need to do anything regarding your license. The pay I have experienced is anywhere from $13.25/hr to $16.80/hr (shift diff.) The nursing homes usually pay a little better base pay, but hospitals have a better shift differential and probably more overtime if you want it. There are a lot of good places to work down here in the Dallas/FW area. Good luck to you!
