Texas Board of Nursing Celebrates 110 Years I am very proud to say that I am a Texas RN. I lived in Texas, studied in Texas and worked in Texas. So this year when Texas Board of Nursing is celebrating its 110th anniversary, it feels extra special to be part of this great state. The first meeting of the Texas Board of Nursing took place on July 20, 1909, at the Driskill Hotel in Austin. The new board approved 222 nurse licenses that year. Today in Texas, there are more than 435,000 Texas nurses including: 106,568 licensed vocational nurses, 329,147 registered nurses, and 31,990 advanced practice registered nurses. And I am proud to be one of them! Anila
