Renewing Advanced Practice Registered Nursing (APRN) licenses can be tricky and time consuming. Especially for APRNs holding multiple board certifications in more than one state, APRN licensure maintenance is burdensome. Whether you are a nurse practitioner, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist or Certified Nurse-Midwife, our licensing specialists at MLG can help make your license renewal processes easier. We can also help with your state Registered Nursing (RN) license renewals.
Common APRN Licensure Renewal Requirements
APRN licensure requirements vary by state and are regularly updated and amended. Keeping up with these changes, along with different renewal deadlines in each state where you are licensed to practice, is challenging for most busy APRNs. At a minimum, most state boards of nursing require the following documentation to renew an APRN license:
- RN license in either that state or a compact RN license in the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) in the participating state in which you reside.
- Proof of minimum required practice hours (varies greatly by state).
- Completion of minimum amount of contact hours (varies greatly by state).
- These hours are often required to be targeted for your role (for example, focused on controlled substances, pharmacology, domestic violence, or other specifics).
- Completed renewal application.
- Proof of national certification
APRNs holding prescriptive authority can expect additional renewal requirements and stipulations that vary by state.
