Licensure- Check Status of Application for Initial Licensure (Endorsement, Examination, or Advanced Practice Registered Nurse) OR Reinstatement of Licensure

The review, of an application for licensure, can only be performed after specific items are received or required processes have been completed. This online verification allows Endorsement applicants, Nursing Students, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse applicants and Reinstatement applicants (4 or more years away from nursing practice) to check the status of these "Required Items". To view required items for your application, enter your First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth, Application Type and click the "Submit" button.

Processing Time: If it is not on the list of items received please allow us up to 10 business days from the date that the item was received by the Board of Nursing for it to appear. If the item is the last item required in the needs list to complete your file then the file will be reviewed and the next step of the process will be taken within 10 business days.

Note for RN and LVN NCLEX applicants: The Nursing Jurisprudence Examination (NJE) and Pearson Vue (PV) registration MUST be completed BEFORE you can receive your Authorization to Test (ATT) and in turn your GN/GVN permit (if applicable). Log-in below and check the status of your application for more information on any outstanding items.

** If you HAVE registered with Pearson Vue, but it is not showing a date of completion, first verify with PV that you selected Texas as your testing jurisdiction. If your jurisdiction is correct, then email webmaster@bon.texas.gov with the subject line “PV Payment Update to File” and include your full name, DOB, and date you paid PV in the body of your email. This will be updated within ten (10) business days.
