Welcome to the Ohio Board of Nursing

Public protection is critical, as nursing impacts every citizen of Ohio. Through licensing services, education programs, and compliance processes, we are dedicated to ensuring public protection.

Rule Revisions

The Board completes its five-year review of applicable rules in a timely manner each year. Also, each year, individual rules not slated for five-year review are amended to comply with recent legislative changes or for technical or non-substantive reasons.

The Board held a hearing regarding proposed rule revisions on November 20, 2019. You may review the proposed rule changes at the Register of Ohio website, http://www.registerofohio.state.oh.us/rules/search.

Promoting Excellence in Health Care Regulation

Whether you are applying for or renewing a license, filing a complaint, or need to learn more about continuing education, the Board can assist you. Together we can protect the health and welfare of the public through effective regulations and nursing excellence.
