I am going on 4 yrs of not working as a nurse, I am a LVN and am not sure I will ever work in the nursing field again but I worked hard to get my license and don't really want to let it go. Is it better to retire it, make it inactive or is there more than continuing Ed classes I need to do to keep it active? Would love some advice and discussion on the subject. Not sure if every state is different or not but I'm in TX

Texas BON requires refresher is no practice in 5 years.....+ current ceu requirement to re activate.....

Since you are under five years, I'd get the 20 ceus done and apply for re activate before the five yr. Mark.

I am retired and am not planning to return to nursing. That being said, I am going to keep my nursing license current just in case I would have any kind of unexpected financial emergency.

Hi blackcat,

Are you completely retired? Are you working part time or have a business?
