Late Renewals

IBON Online Services Click here to renew your nursing license via the Internet.

Renewals that are received on the 16th of the birth month and prior to the 16th of the following month are considered late renewals, requiring payment of the $50 late fee in addition to the $99 renewal fee. The date the envelope is postmarked is not taken into consideration. The date received in the Board office is the date used to determine if the renewal is late.

Board of Nursing rules do not prohibit the practice of nursing during the 30 day grace period. However, the employer has the prerogative to prohibit practice during this time frame.

Licensees may continue to obtain continuing education during the 30 days after expiration, but anyone renewing late will be audited.

Board staff does not have the authority to waive the $50 late fee. A licensee may submit a Petition for Waiver of the late fee for review by the board.
