Are you a nurse looking for an assignment in Texas? If you don’t already reside in the Lone Star State, you can get started by obtaining a temporary or permanent RN license through the Texas State Board of Nursing. The temporary license takes on average 6-8 weeks to be issued. In addition to helping match nurses with travel RN jobs in Texas, the recruiters and professionals at PPR Travel Nursing can help answer questions and guide travelers through the state licensing process. Recruiters will advise nurses to apply and fill out the endorsement application in order to start the process for obtaining a license in Texas. The Texas State Board of Nursing participates in the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), which currently allows nurses holding any one of 25 compact state licenses to practice in both their home state and other compact states. If you hold an RN license in Arizona or New Mexico, for example, you can take a travel nurse assignment in Texas without having to obtain a separate license. Below you'll find additional resources for acquiring and renewing your Texas Registered Nurse License.
Texas is known for a number of things: big cities and colorful small towns; famous barbecue, chili and other regional cuisine; sporting events; the “Don’t Mess with Texas” attitude; and historical sites. It also boasts some impressive seashores that are worth a visit during your travel assignment. If shopping and history sound appealing, then travel RNs may want to consider an assignment in San Antonio. In addition to the top-rated hospitals and medical centers found in the area, the state’s second-most-populated city features the historic Alamo and the unique San Antonio River Walk, a network of pathways along the river that intersect and lead to a variety of dining, shopping and nightlife attractions.
