ALERT

DATES TO REMEMBER
September 15th – Renew no later than September 15th to avoid paying a late processing fee that goes into effect on September 16, 2016. The late fee will be the $65 renewal fee plus an additional $50 fee. The total late renewal fee is $115.

October 31th – Renew no later than October 31th or your license will lapse on November 1, 2016. You cannot work as a nurse as long as your license is lapsed. You must then apply for reinstatement of your license. The reinstatement process takes additional time to process. Please take the necessary steps to avoid this happening to you.

The Board realizes that numerous licensees are experiencing various types of issues with the implementation of the new Ohio 3.0 eLicense system. The Board and the Ohio Department of Administrative Services are working diligently to resolve the technical issues so that we may provide you the needed services. The Board has a very high volume of calls and emails, and have reassigned staff to help respond. It has been difficult to respond as quickly as we would like and we apologize for the delays.

The new 3.0 Ohio eLicense system is operational. We are a part of a comprehensive professional regulatory license system used by the majority of Ohio’s licensing boards. The system includes several new features and upgrades that should help the Board better serve our licensees and the public. The system will for the first time allow all licensure and certification applications to be entered and processed online, including renewals. The Board continues to be committed and invested in ways that provide the best public protection and customer service possible.  Thank you for your anticipated patience and cooperation as we all begin using the new system. Please continue to visit this site for updates as they become available.
