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.
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
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.
Accompanied by proof that the requirement of continuing education is
(4) Accompanied by a complete
set of the applicant's fingerprints or two completed fingerprint cards, if so
required by the Board.
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
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
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.
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.
