HHSC Provides Update on TULIP Credentialing for NFAs

July 14, 2022

The Texas Unified Licensure information Portal (TULIP) credentialing system for Nursing Facility Administrators (NFAs) is operational. Current NFAs whose license has expired or will be expiring soon and those going through the initial NFA process are encouraged to use TULIP to begin the licensure process and renewal.

HHSC is working on making TULIP available for all NFA licensure processes. Once the new system is determined to be fully functional, HHSC will send another alert and the 60-day grace period for NFA renewals described in PL 2022-20 will begin.

For help with navigating through TULIP, see the TULIP Training Guide (PDF).

For issues related to registration and errors received in TULIP, email TULIP Support.

For assistance with the application process, email the NFA Licensing Program. We anticipate a high volume of emails, so please be patient. Email responses will be given in the order they are received.
