First time license renewal. My license expires in less than 3 weeks. Texas board of nurses just changed their website I cannot figure out how to submit my application for renewal. Calling them doesn't work and their office is closed due to COVID . Can someone who's done it through their new postal walk me through the process please?

Where are you getting stuck, exactly? I looked at it briefly and the first step appears to be creating an account. I don't live in Texas anymore, so I stopped there. It does say their office opens at 8AM on Monday if you need to call.

Renewals are typically fast, so try not to panic too much.

I created an account but it doesn't give me the option to apply for renewal and I can't get through to them over the phone.

During these COVID times with most staff working from home, I've found great success using EMAIL to contact licensing bureau's.

I have been trying to renew my license since the first of August. I have followed the instructions to generate an account to the new nursing portal for the Texas board, but when I get on there is nowhere to click to renew! Feeling aggravated! Arrrh
