Texas Nursing Continuing Education Requirements

Biologix Solutions LLC is an approved provider of nursing continuing education courses by the California Board of Nursing (CEP – 15746), Board of Nursing in Arkansas, Florida, District of Columbia, Georgia, and South Carolina (CE Broker: 50-12950).

What CNE is Acceptable?: According to Texas Nursing Board Continuing Education Rules – To count toward licensure renewal, a program must have been approved by one of the credentialing agencies recognized by the Board. The credentialing agencies have met nationally-predetermined criteria to approve programs and providers of CNE. The Board recognizes the following credentialing agencies and providers: Other State Boards of Nursing

Texas Nursing CE Requirements (Click Here):

There are several mandatory continuing education requirements that nurses must meet. These requirements are detailed in this section. A nurse is required to retain continuing competency records for three licensure renewal cycles at a minimum [Board Rule 216.7 (c)].Nursing Jurisprudence and Nursing Ethics. All licensed vocational nurses (LVNs), registered nurses (RNs), and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are required to complete at least two contact hours of CNE in nursing jurisprudence and ethics prior to the end of each third two-year licensure renewal cycle for licensure cycles beginning on or after January 1, 2014. The course is required to contain information related to the Texas Nursing Practice Act, Texas BON Rules, Texas BON Position Statements, principles of nursing ethics, and professional boundaries [Board Rule 216.3(g)]. This course counts as part of the 20 required contact hours; however, certification cannot be used to fulfill this mandatory requirement [Board Rule 216.3(g)].Older Adult or Geriatric Care. Any LVN, RN, or APRN whose practice includes the older adult or geriatric population is required to complete at least two contact hours in every licensure cycle beginning on or after January 1, 2014 [Board Rule 216.3(h)]. The content must include information relating to elder abuse, age related memory changes and disease processes, including chronic conditions, and end of life issues [Board Rule 216.3(h)(1)]. A nurse may choose to complete more than one course in order to cover all content required in the rule.Forensic Evidence Collection CNEEffective September 1, 2013, nurses who perform a forensic exam on a sexual assault survivor must have completed basic forensic evidence collection training, or the equivalent education, prior to performing the examination [Board Rule 216.3(d)(1)]. This is a one-time requirement; therefore, nurses who perform forensic exams are encouraged to retain the certificate of course completion indefinitely.Effective September 1, 2005, the NPA was amended, adding the CNE requirement: Forensic Evidence Collection in Continuing Education. This targeted CNE requirement applies to all nurses practicing in emergency department (ED) settings as their home unit, floating, contracted, or other duties that involve functioning in an ED setting or role. This is a one-time requirement per nurse effective September 1, 2006. Any nurse who is working in an ED setting must complete this requirement within two years of the initial date of the nurse’s employment in an ED setting [Board Rule 216.3(d)(2)].  There is no expiration date for this requirement under Texas Occupations Code Section 301.306 (NPA); thus, any nurse working in the ED must comply and maintain the course completion certificate indefinitely.

Requirements for the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN)

A licensee who is licensed by the Board to practice as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) is required to obtain 20 contact hours of targeted continuing education in the advanced practice role and population focus area recognized by the Board or attain, maintain, or renew the national certification recognized by the Board as meeting the certification requirement for the APRN role and population focus area of licensure; this will satisfy the requirements to renew both the RN license and APRN licensure. The Board approves four broad categories of APRNs including Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS), Nurse Midwife (CNM), Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), and Nurse Practitioner (NP).

In addition to the 20 contact hours of continuing education in the advanced practice role and population focus area or renewal of the certification as specified, an APRN who has Prescriptive Authority must also complete at least five additional contact hours in pharmacotherapeutics within the preceding two years. APRNs that have prescriptive authority and prescribe controlled substances must complete at least three additional contact hours of continuing education related to prescribing controlled substances (this totals 28 contact hours for the APRN with prescriptive authority who prescribes controlled substances). Category I Continuing Medical Education (CME) contact hours will meet requirements for continuing competency for APRNs. Academic courses; program development and presentation; and authorship may be utilized to meet continuing competency requirements if they are targeted to the APRN role and population focus area for which they are licensed [Board Rule 216.3(c)].
