Nev. Admin. Code § 632.192 - Expiration and renewal of license or certificate

Current through March 28, 2022

1. Each licensee or holder of a certificate who wishes to renew his or her license or certificate must submit an application for renewal of the license or certificate to the Board before the expiration of the license or certificate. The application for renewal must be received by the Board on or before the end of the business day on which the authorization to practice expires.
2. The Board will find that the licensee or holder of the certificate has made sufficient application for renewal of the authorization to practice and will renew that person's license or certificate if:
(a) The application for renewal is:
(1) Truthful, accurate and complete, and made on the form supplied by the Board.
(2) Accompanied by payment of the required fee. If the fee is paid in a form other than cash, it must be made on an account with a sufficient amount of money for payment of the instrument or by a valid debit or credit card.
(3) Accompanied by proof that the requirement of continuing education is met.
(4) Accompanied by a complete set of the applicant's fingerprints or two completed fingerprint cards, if so required by the Board.
(5) Accompanied by proof that the licensee has satisfied the requirements of subsection 4, if the application is for renewal of a license and the licensee has not practiced nursing during the immediately preceding 5-year period.
(6) Accompanied by the attestation required pursuant to NAC 632.193, if the application is for the renewal of a certificate to practice as a nursing assistant or medication aide - certified.
(b) The applicant attests that he or she committed no act which could subject his or her application to denial nor developed any condition which may interfere with his or her ability to practice in a safe and effective manner.
3. If an application does not meet the requirements of subsection 2, the staff of the Board will not renew the license or certificate. If the applicant makes an application to appear before the Board, the staff may issue a temporary license or certificate which remains valid for not more than 6 months after the date on which the temporary license or certificate was issued. If the license or certificate is not renewed because the applicant paid the required fee with an instrument written on an account with an insufficient amount of money for payment of the instrument, the staff may require the payment of a late fee and a fee to cover the administrative cost of handling the instrument.
4. An applicant for renewal of a license who has not practiced nursing during the immediately preceding 5-year period must complete a course or program approved by the Board if the applicant has otherwise satisfied the requirements for renewal set forth in this chapter and chapter 632 of NRS. The Board may issue to the applicant a temporary license for not more than 6 months after the date on which it was issued for the sole purpose of completing the course or program in which the applicant is enrolled. Upon submission of evidence of completion of the course or program, the Board will issue to the applicant a permanent license if he or she has satisfied the requirements of subsection 2.
5. An original license or certificate is valid for the period from the date of issuance to the licensee's or certificate holder's second birthday after issuance. Thereafter, each license or certificate will expire biennially on the licensee's or certificate holder's birthday. In a leap year the license or certificate of a licensee or certificate holder born on February 29 expires on February 28.
