Professional Licensure Disclosures

Texas A & M University, Corpus Christi makes every effort to ensure state licensure or certification information is current; however, state requirements may change. If you are a prospective or current student planning to pursue professional licensure or certification in a state other than Texas, it is strongly recommended that you contact the appropriate licensing entity in that state to seek information and guidance regarding licensure or certification requirements before beginning an academic program.

For more information on professional licensure requirements in the field, please contact Sara Baldwin, Associate Dean of Academic Programs at Texas A & M University, Corpus Christi in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences (sara.baldwin@tamucc.edu or 361-825-3439).

 

National Licensing Boards

National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) is an independent, not-for-profit organization through which nursing regulatory bodies act and counsel together on matters of common interest and concern affecting public health, safety and welfare, including the development of nursing licensure examinations. It is not a licensing board.

The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) is a nationwide examination for the licensing of nurses in the United States and Canada.
