Or. Admin. R. 851-031-0041 - [Effective 6/28/2024] Governor Declared Emergency

(1) During an emergency declared by the Governor pursuant to ORS 401.165 and subject to terms and conditions that the Board may impose, a limited LPN or RN license may be issued to an applicant who holds active unencumbered nursing licensure at the same level in another state or U.S. jurisdiction when the following requirements are met:
(a) A completed application and payment of fee is received by the Board; and
(b) Using instructions provided by the Board, the applicant must arrange for primary source verification of the active unencumbered nursing license in another state or jurisdiction.
(2) The limited license shall expire on the following date, whichever occurs first:
(a) The Oregon Governor-Declared Emergency declaration expires; or
(b) The license in the state or jurisdiction that was used to obtain the limited license expires; or
(c) Two years after the issuance of the limited license.
(3) Non-Renewable Limited License: A limited license for a governor-declared emergency is not renewable and expires based on whichever occurs first in OAR 851-031-0041(2). The individual must apply for permanent Oregon LPN or RN licensure by endorsement to continue working as a nurse in Oregon. Continuing to work in Oregon after the limited license has expired, and without an active permanent Oregon nursing license at the same level is considered practicing without a valid license and is subject to Board action.
(4) Reactivation of Limited License: A previously issued expired limited license may be reactivated if the following are true:
(a) A new state of emergency has been declared by the Governor; and
(b) The individual has not been issued permanent Oregon nursing licensure by endorsement; and
(c) Holds active unencumbered nursing licensure at the same level in another state or U.S. jurisdiction.
(d) A qualified applicant must:
(A) Submit a completed reactivation application and fee to the Board; and
(B) Using instructions provided by the Board, the applicant must arrange for primary source verification of the active unencumbered nursing license in another state or jurisdiction.
