About the Electronic Fingerprinting Process:
Once the application, fee, affidavit of graduation, fingerprints, and criminal background report have been received, the Board will determine if you are eligible to test.
If you are eligible to take the NCLEX, you will receive an email verification from Pearson/Vue giving you the authorization to test (ATT) and instructions on scheduling the test.
Upon receiving the ATT, you will have 75 days to take the exam.
When passing NCLEX and Nursing Jurisprudence Examination results are received by the Board, you will receive a certificate stating you have passed.
You must, then, go to the agency website at www.bon.texas.gov to access your license and complete an online verification.
About Temporary Permits:
If you require special testing accommodations due to disability or religious conflict, you must fill out the Requesting Special Accommodations form found here: Special Accommodations Form. You should be aware that your application for special accommodations requires supporting documentation from a medical professional and may take some time to complete. The form should be submitted as early in the process as possible.
