New Here

Hi: I'm new here and am trying to navigate around this site in the hopes of finding out how i get a job in Texas (where I now live) with my active CT. License. I can't figure out how to get a Texas License from anything I've read on other sites. Can anyone help me out?

I graduated from a diploma school of nursing and have done mostly Geriatrics. Altho my last 2 jobs were 6 yrs of VNA and ! yr. Adult Day Care(on-site Nurse). I really loved the Adult Day Care as it gave me one on one bonding with the people. I have been retired 2 years but there are school nurse jobs in the area but I can't apply w/out a Tx.license. Can anyone out there shed some light on this for me? I will navigate your site and get informed. Looks interesting here. Thanks...JLSNRN

Hi: I am new to this forum. I am a retired RN (2 yrs). Specialty was Geriatrics. Last 2 jobs VNA 6 yrs, Adult Day Care (on-Site Nurse )1 yr.Got my RN from a diploma program in CT. Worked in CT. all my career. Moved to TX. last year (9/05). I cannot find out how to convert my Ct. license to a TX.license. I called the Nursing Board in Houston and got push button service and none of the options pertained to me. I understand that most states accept licenses from another state but it seems like that is not so between CT. and TX. I am thinking of doing per diem school nursing and can't even take the first step w/out a TX. license. Please help me. Thanks!!:nurse:

AND A LINK TO THE LIST OF COMPACT STATES http://www.ncsbn.org/nlc/rnlpvncompact_mutual_recognition_state.asp MEANING YOU DONT HAVE TO GET A TEXAS LICENCE PER SE, but you can get a licence in one of the compact states and texas will have no problems endorsing you.

Welcome to Allnurses. I moved your post to the Texas forum out of the Introductions.

Have you contacted the state of Texas? http://www.bne.state.tx.us/

You will need to endorse your Connecticut license into Texas. You need a Texas nursing license if your intent is to work in Texas, and you cannot work in Texas with a Connecticut license.

Endorsement is a relatively swift process. At least that was my experience. It took about 5 weeks to endorse my California license into Texas.
