I am an LVN living in the state of Texas. I had a misdemeanor drug charge pending over a year ago. I self reportedto the board of nursing after my arrest while the charges were still pending. I was placed on probation for 1 year a few months later. My probation is almost complete and I willhave to renew my nursing license soon. When renewing do I have to report myself to the board of nursing again?

My understanding is that we report any NEW legal issues at the time of renewal. This isn't new, they already know about this.

You will need to inquire with the board. My understanding is that you have to report all charges every time you apply, even if they know about it. In my state, you are required to put it all down at each renewal. Better be safe and call you board.
