RNs renewing their licenses must demonstrate evidence of qualifications for practice through completion of one or more
of the following five requirements within the past two years prior to the expiration date of the license:
- Employment in a position that requires a registered nurse with verification of at least 520 work hours; or
- Completion of at least twenty-four (24) contact hours of continuing education applicable to nursing practice; or
- Current certification in a nursing specialty area; or
- Completion of a Board-approved refresher course; or
- Completion of at least six (6) academic semester credit hours of nursing coursework at the licensee’s current level of licensure or higher.
The options for continuing qualifications may not be combined in the same two year period to meet requirements (e.g., a licensee may not submit verification of 260 employment hours and twelve (12) contact hours as proof of eligibility.
The licensee will be required to verify at the time of license renewal that he/she has met the continuing qualifications for practice within the two-year period prior to the license expiration date. If the licensee is audited, supporting documentation must be submitted.
