Announcement for Nurse Aide and Medication Aide Systems

The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is issuing this alert to announce that the Long-term Care Regulation (LTCR) Credentialing Unit enhancements to the Texas Unified Licensure Information Portal (TULIP) are coming soon. TULIP is a web-based licensure system designed specifically for licensed long-term care providers and licensees.

The enhancements will allow nurse aides (NA), medication aides (MA), medication aide schools, nurse aide training and competency evaluation programs (NATCEPs) and providers to complete all licensing and application functions online. More details to come.

An official announcement regarding the release date will be sent via HHSC alert, Provider Letter, and emailed to nurse aides, medication aides, NATCEPs, medication aide schools and providers that have a valid email address with HHSC.
