Texas Nurses

The Texas Board of Nursing accepts courses from CE Leaders.

State Requirements

RNs and LVNs must complete 20 contact hours of continuing education every 2 years in their area of practice. Board Rule 216.1 defines “area of practice” as “any activity, assignment, or task in which the nurse utilized nursing knowledge, judgment, or skills during the licensing period. If a nurse does not have a current area of practice, the nurse may refer to his or her most recent area of practice.”

• Any RN or LVN that works in an emergency room setting, must complete at least 2 contact hours of continuing education relevant to forensic evidence collection (this is a 1 time requirement).
• Any RN or LVN whose practice includes older adults or geriatric populations, must complete at least 2 contact hours of continuing education relating to older adults or geriatric populations every 2 years.
• All RNs and LVNs must complete at least 2 contact hours of continuing education relating to nursing jurisprudence and nursing ethics (every 3rd renewal).
• Any RN or LVN who provides direct patient care must complete a human trafficking prevention course that is approved by the Executive Director of Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) every 2 years.
