I haven’t worked as a nurse in almost 10 years and when Texas temporarily waved the requirements needed to reinstate a license Because of the pandemic, I sent my paperwork in. Any other TX nurses doing the same and have you gotten approved yet?

In case anyone else is searching for this info. I applied on the 25th and less than 10 days later I was approved! Now to figure out who would take me.

WOW!, didn't even know they were doing that. I've been in cardiac rehab for a few years, so considered "away from bedside", and was wondering if the pandemic could be a way back if I so wished. But thankfully things aren't that bad here, yet.

Have you been applying for positions? How has it been going? So you got your license back but no refresher or anything?

I did this for my Illinois license and got it within 2 days of applying. Mine only expired in 2018. Just curious how long is your Texas license good for? Illinois is doing a limited license just for Covid so mine expires again now 9/30/20

Not yet! I’ve been looking, but so far around here there doesn’t seem to be a huge need. Yet. No refresher, just the license. So I’m not sure where I could work. But I wanted to be prepared in case!

My license was delinquent since 2012. I also renewed using the waiver. It shows valid until December 2020. Does anyone know if the original requirements like refresher course etc are going to be required to renew again?

I had a license in Texas at one time. If they were a compact state I would definitely do that! I'm in AZ now. They are waiving refresher here as well, but you have to have a job start date to reinstate your license. I'm eight years out. I've decided to go through a refresher program. Haven't figured out a way around it. Probably best anyhow. A lot has changed in 8 years so I'd feel better doing the refresher anyhow. It would be nice if they'd lower the cost during this time though! 🙂
