New licensing system coming this fall!

The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is currently working with the National Council of State Boards of Nursing on a new licensing system named the Optimal Regulatory Board System (ORBS), which will allow the BON to transition to completely paperless processes. Upon launching the system, each nurse will be required to access a portal from the BON website and create an account. Every nurse will be required to have a current email account. Since most applicants and licensees use the current online system, this should be a smooth transition. The BON will provide thorough instructions to all licensees in the next BON Bulletin.
