In response to your request, we will send you a determination letter. If a transfer has been approved, please be advised that during the interim period between webinars the registration fee may be increased and you will be responsible for the difference. Also, please contact the BON to verify that your registration has been transferred to the subsequent webinar and that there are not additional fees required to complete registration.

In order to receive a continuing education certificate, each attendee must fill out an evaluation of the webinar and return to Workshops@bon.texas.gov by the following Monday after the webinar. Evaluations will be attached to the reminder email you receive two (2) days prior to the webinar. Evaluations will also be available during the webinar and accessible on the webinar as a handout. The evaluation can be downloaded to your computer and printed. If an evaluation is not received, attendance at the webinar cannot be verified and a continuing nursing education certificate cannot be issued.
The webinars can be viewed in a group or individually. If you are registering with a group, please select one individual who will serve as the coordinator of the webinar. After the webinar, this coordinator will submit all the evaluations via email to Workshops@bon.texas.gov and will receive all the continuing education certificates back from this email address to distribute to attendees in group.
