Requirements for Approval of a Nursing Program

The Board of Nursing must approve nurse education programs conducted in Minnesota that prepare persons to be licensed as advanced practice registered nurses, practical nurses, or professional nurses.

The statutory requirements for initial and continuing approval of a nursing program that prepares students for basic entry into advanced practice registered nursing, practical or professional nursing are found in Minnesota Statutes Section 148.251.

In addition Minnesota Rules Chapter 6301 specify the boards administrative procedure and requirements for obtaining approval or renewal of approval of a nursing program.

To obtain an application for approval of a nursing program contact the Board of Nursing at nursing.board@state.mn.us.
