If you are also an APRN, you only need to renew your RN license. Your APRN recognition always expires the earliest of your RN expiration date or national certification expiration date. After your RN license is renewed, our APRN recognition expiration date will update. It takes about 3 business days for your RN license to renew after you complete the online renewal process.

Make sure you go to and enroll yourself in e-Notify as a Nurse in order to receive notification when your license is actually renewed. Missouri does not send license cards.

No Grace Period to Renew

A nurse is required to renew 3 business days prior to the expiration date. Failure to do so may result in the license becoming lapsed, which requires the nurse to complete a reinstatement application, submit additional fees and submit to fingerprint background checks.
