New Texas Nurse Refresher Rules as of Oct. 11, 2010


Specializes in Education, IV Therapy, Travel Medicine.

Texas Newsletter for October just came out.

New requirement: All nurses returning to practice after being in-active for more than 4 years, endorsing from out of state (several months ago this came out), and new grads (required for some time now also) must do a multiple choice Nursing Jurisprudence Exam online as one of the steps to returning to practice. It is open book and you can purchase a study guide if you want to. I have had 4 refresher groups graduate since the endorsement nurses have been required and only 1 nurse had to take twice (she states she was very distracted as baby woke from nap early and was crying). Everyone else passed the first time. We cover the curriculum as we are teaching so should not be an issue and exam is very straight forward, no trick questions.
