Here I am once again ..Texas finnally had issued me a temporary licence..
I got a JOB ..I am employed as a LVN and now the Texas Board let my license expire ..they gave me NO REASON for it ..just when I called the answer I got was ...your license is in process for review...
I NEVER IN ALL MY LIFE AS A LVN heard such bull..
for anyone out there whom that has happened to ....any advise for me...
I have a current RPN license from Canada ...and a LPN license from NEW York State ..I also Passed the NCLEX-PN exam ....
I am still working but now my workplace asked me to produce my permanent license since the temp one expieres ..
I am at a loss and I do NOT want to loose my job....I am a exellent Nurse and I always do my continuing education and would NEVER set myself or a patient at RISK....
PLEASE ANYONE OUT THERE WITH ANY ADVISE ..

I would re-contact the board and get to the bottom of this...they are the only ones to give you answers. Good luck...judi
Hmmm, wondering since your license is hanging in the balance can you still work or call yourself LPN/LVN?? I think it is very important to get to the bottom of this before continuing in a position you seem not to have a current license for. JMHO.
Call the BNE, harass the utter crap out of them if you need to, but get to the bottom of this STAT!! You CAN NOT practice nursing in the state of texas legally without a current license, and if you do practice while your license is expired, you can get in serious trouble.

Harass is the word ring them and tell them you are coming to see them in person then go there in person well dressed and sit with your arms crossed - don't say anything just sit impassive. It is much much harder to turn someone down in person than to do it over the phone. Do not get upset but let them know you mean business. Do not ever apologise but be firm and polite. Good luck!!
The staff @ my work is real supportive and the Administrator said "that if I wasn't such a good Nurse ,they would have not helped me as much"
I keep calling the Board of Texas every day ,every day I get someone else on the phone its frustrating ...but hopefully by Friday this mess will have been sorted out.
I will inform you all ...and THANKS FOR ALL THE ADVISE...
it has been a long hard battle ..I have written and passed the NCLEX-PN...
New YORK gave me a license ...Texas GAVE me a temp. license and now why shouldn't they give me a permanent license ..I have gotten a full time job and worked for 90 days ..and I have proffen myself on the job...
so please pray for me that Friday all will be OK ....
End of story after daily calling and patience I finnally got my permanent license for TEXAS and all compound states
Well it was a long fight and I am blessed to finnally hold a license for Texas.
I have now 3 licenses NEW YORK STATE, Canada/Ontario and TEXAS
Anyone out there wanting help in how to aquire a license in Texas ,please refer them to me
Thanks to you all for all the advise and comforting support

I came to Texas from AZ, had an AZ RN license, got a TX RN license. I'd been working as an RN in Texas for over two years, and bought a house here, etc., Suddenly, I get a letter from the TX BON saying they are going to invalidate my license in 14 days because I never "legally declared Texas as my primary state of residence".
I guess buying a house, getting a license, etc wasn't enough.
After much harrassment (by me) and me overnighting a notorized statement declaring that indeed, Texas is my primary state of residence, the BON stopped their BS and left my license alone.
Texas is a rediculous place, sometimes.
:chuckle I agree with you Texas BNE is a hard place to deal with ...
if you do not know what to ask ,
they will NEVER give you a correct answer:angryfire
