Expired Nursing License ~ Texas Board of Nursing (BON)
In Texas, you need to renew your nursing license every two years. One of the requirements of license renewal is that you’ve completed at least 20 contact hours of continuing education in the past two years.
Practicing nursing, after your license has expired, can have far-reaching ramifications.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) could take a number of disciplinary actions, including:
If you've submitted your renewal application by the last day of the month that your nursing license is set to expire, you have a grace period of one month. You can continue to practice nursing during this grace period, while your nursing license renewal is being processed by the BON.
If, however, you didn’t get your application submitted by the last day of your expiration month, you’ll need to go through the delinquent renewal process. In addition to the typical charges for a license renewal, you’ll also pay a late fee for reactivating from delinquent status.
