I just heard a random non-nursing guy saying that NP in Texas now can practice independently. I googled about it but I couldn’t find anything. Have you guys heard of this?

That would be a negative. Where did this guy get his information?

I live in TX, I'm in a private practice where the NP is here alone, but she still has a delegating she consults with. It is mandatory here still and even as much as we lobby the AMA will likely not back down in the foreseeable future. We recant the same thing every year at the capitol.

Don’t ask the internet, ask the BON directly to get accurate information.

I think there is a lot of confusion on this subject, since you can be "independent" by owning your own practice... but you still require a delegating physician. You can also be "independent" in a practice, work with MDs/DOs in Iowa, you just don't need a delegating. 🤷‍♂️

Same in IN and other states that still require oversight.  And I don't think the AMA is going to let go of the controls anytime soon
