Temporary APRN Licensure & PAA Waivers
For the duration of the Hurricane Harvey disaster declaration, the Governor has approved a temporary waiver of certain state requirements for prescription authority agreements (PAA) between supervising physicians and physician assistants and/or APRNs. Also, any out-of-state nurse with a license in good standing is not required to hold a Texas license in order to practice nursing in a disaster relief effort operation setting.
