Welcome to the Texas Board of Nursing

The Process of Co-Regulation of Nursing Education Programs in Texas
Between the Board of Nursing (BON), the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC),
And the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board


The BON, TWC, and THECB rely upon their co-regulatory processes to ensure that nursing education programs have both the appropriate oversight with unnecessary duplication.

Representatives from TWC, THECB, and BON have collaborated to produce a comparative crosswalk between approval processes. The crosswalk and a schematic outline of the agencies’ areas of purview provide valuable tools demonstrating the coordinated regulation of nursing education programs in Texas.
