The process of getting licensed in Texas as an RN

Hi everybody !

I have just started the process of getting my license in Texas I hold an Ohio RN license ..I have applied and paid the licensing fee and submitted my application online

I was wondering since I am a non Texas resident, where do I go for the fingerprinting and how do I get the fingerprint card?


I went to Sylvan Learning Center in Allen. I know it's a strange location but they did my fingerprints for a small fee and I got my card in the mail a few weeks later. Hope that helps!

You can go to any local police department, sheriff's office, or FBI field office to get fingerprinted. Personally, I was fingerprinted at a local police station.
