    * - In 2013, a discrepancy in RN data for Wharton County was identified. Because of this discrepancy, Wharton County RN totals are notably lower than in past years. 

    ** -  Prior to 2012, the Health Professions Resource Center tabulated Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) based solely on a self-reported field within the Board of Nursing's RN Licensure file. Beginning in 2012, HPRC began identifying APRNs using the Board of Nursing's APRN licensure file. Thus data from 2011 and before likely underreports the number of APRNs practicing in the state.

    Note:  Many agencies that certify or license health professionals collect only a licensee's mailing address for correspondence purposes. The mailing (RESIDENCE) address may be either the work or home address of the licensee. If available, the HPRC county totals for each profession are based on the PRACTICE address from licensure data, and from the mailing/residence address if the practice address is not available.  Therefore, when the mailing/residence address is used, the county supply totals may not accurately reflect the actual supply in a county since a professional may live in one county but practice in another.


    Please contact the Health Professions Resource Center at (512) 776-7261 or contact us by email if you have any comments or questions about the above licensing board information or supply tables.
