How Many CEUs Do Texas RNs Need?
Many states in the U.S. require a certain number of contact hours for license renewal. As a registered nurse in Texas, you are required to complete 20 contact hours every 2 years in your area of practice., and certain nurses must take specific courses. The content areas that are specified in the Texas nurse practice act include:
- Two contact hours of continuing education relating to Nursing Jurisprudence and Ethics before the end of every third two-year licensing period
- Two contact hours related to Forensic Evidence Collection for Sexual Assault Victims for any RN practicing in an emergency room setting (one-time requirement)
- Two contact hours related to older adults and Geriatrics
- Content related to tick-borne diseases for RNs working with this population
With these requirements in mind we've developed a bundle specifically for Texas RNs. You can view the bundle here.
These courses are included in the California RN bundle:
- Geriatrics (2 hours)
