There is no longer a difference between the application deadline date and the registration expiration date. Your expiration date is the date your registration will expire. If you are renewing by paper, your application must be received by the Board by your registration expiration date. If your license is not renewed by midnight, either online or by paper, you must apply for reregistration. We are not responsible for any delays in mail delivery. If you have any concerns about your paper application not reaching us in time to process your application by your registration expiration date, you should renew online.
No. However, you should consider that to return to the practice of nursing in Minnesota you will have to apply for reregistration. The requirements for reregistration are different than renewal and vary depending on the length of time since your license expired and the length of time since you last practiced nursing.
At the time of initial licensure or reregistration, your licensure period is determined by the date of licensure as it relates to the month and year of your birth. The licensure period can vary from 6 to 29 months depending upon your date of birth and the start date of your registration period. After this initial period of licensure, your license will be in effect for two years.
