Emergency Rule Effective April 26, 2018

The emergency amendment expands existing mileage limits of advanced practice registered nurses to seventy five miles from collaborating physicians. This addresses the current shortage of health professionals and the need to provide adequate care for our citizens and their medical needs.

LPN Licenses Expire May 31, 2018 - RENEW NOW

Approximately 25,000 renewal postcards were mailed to LPNs in early March. The postcard contains online renewal instructions. You must either renew online or with a paper renewal. If you did not receive your postcard or need a paper renewal, complete this form and email, mail or fax it to our office. It takes 3-4 business days after your renewal is received before your license is renewed. You will not receive a license card. Go to and enroll yourself in e-Notify as a Nurse in order to receive notification when your license is actually renewed. As an added benefit, you will also receive license renewal reminders and notification of any changes to your license or discipline status by enrolling yourself in this free service.
