Minnesota Statutes, section 326.56 provides for an exemption for persons in the armed forces. As outlined in the Board of Nursing Rules (Minnesota Rule Part 6310.2800, subpart 10), a nurse whose nursing license registration was current at the time of entry into the armed forces does not need to renew registration.
You must complete the renewal application and return it with the required fee to the Board. You will also need to verify CE. The number of CE contact hours are calculated based on the number of months since the exemption ceased and according to the ratio specified in Minnesota Rule Part 6310.2800, subpart 3.
