Nursing license renewal deadline is Oct. 31
The 2012 Kentucky nurse license renewal period is Sept. 15-Oct. 31.
The Kentucky Board of Nursing no longer issues cards with expiration dates. Please do not send a copy of your actual license card to LFCHD Human Resources as it is no longer an acceptable source document for verifying your credential. HR will do the yearly audit on nurse licenses via the KBN website at kbn.ky.gov.
Nursing staff should access the KBN online verification system to confirm licensure status before Oct. 31. Please do not wait until the last day to renew. KBN may not approve and post renewal confirmation the same day you submit.
Please be advised – nurses who have not renewed and posted as such on KBN by Oct. 31 will be placed on administrative leave, without pay, for up to 30 days until the license is renewed.
