It varies from 15 days or greater. Your best resource would be the BON-TX themselves. I suggest you directly contact the department involved with endorsements.

I have gone through the process to receive a Texas nursing license via endorsement twice, and it took approximately five to six weeks to receive the license in both instances.

Just a question. Do we need a CES report when we endorse our license from florida to texas? I am a foreign educated nurse but already working in florida as a nurse.

If you are an internationally educated nurse (IEN), the process to obtain a license by endorsement may take considerably longer. It only took five to six weeks to receive my TX license by endorsement, but I was born and educated here in the States.

Hi Ms kat and The Commuter.. thats fine if it will take longer. But do u have any idea how long for me? what requirements do submit to them?

Thanks in advance guys...

I dont see The Commuters name

I can tell you a bit about my journey, I am a US citizen that graduated in the Philippines.

Originally applied for hawaii, took NCLEX july 2014 and passed :)

I started endorsement for Texas, sent out all requirements during the first week of October 2014, CGFNS CES took a little longer but TX BON received it on 10/30. During the 2nd week of November all items were received, and I was in review for about 2 weeks. Just checked it today and it says submitted for a permanent license 12/1 !! hopefully i can get my license number sometime this week :cat: ill update once i see my license number on BON !

Just an update I saw my license number on TX BON website on 12/4 :) overall the whole process took a little over 2 months from start to finish

Hi guys! I am also in the process of endorsing my HI license to TX. My question is, is it okay for me to go and proceed on for the TX online endorsement process even if I haven't received my physical RN license yet from HI? My license number is already posted on the HI website and I just don't know on how many weeks it will take them to mail my license. Thank you! :)

Hi Katabolic which part of Texas are you from?

How is the job hunting status there?

I moved to san antonio about a month ago!

SA is saturated with hospitals. Im a new grad and got two interviews and offers before moving here. Been in orientation for last 3 weeks and liking it to far !

Yeah i had my physical license but since its all done online i think license number is sufficient ! :)

Katabolic, how about the kind of life there in San Antonio. Would you recommend that city for raising a family. I have 2 kids and thinking of relocating. Houston is where I am researching at right now.

Yeah i had my physical license but since its all done online i think license number is sufficient ! :)

Thank you! I'm already in the process of my TX endorsement. Btw, does hospitals in San Antonio continuously hiring? I'm not a new grad though but I only have 1 year clinic experience. How were you able to land on a job? Was it an easy find?

yup SAT has numerous health systems and hospitals. almost every corner has a hospital or SNF. not exaggerating. found a job quite quickly ! good luck to you

cannot speak for Houston, but SAT is a very family friendly city. lots of families live here and my co workers tell me there are great school systems and cheap housing options ! good luck !

Hi KATabolic, Im also endorsing my hawaii license to texas but just waiting for my license number. Anyhow, Do they still need a copy of my CGFNS? Also, did you send hawaii bon a form of verfication of license to be sent to Texas?

did you order the CGFNS CES again for the endorsement of your hawaii license to texas..?i'm assuming you already did the CGFNS CES during your application for your hawaii license..i'm the same boat as you but i'm trying to move to utah and i have a license in nm buts its only a single state licens since my primary state of residence is here in cali..
