How to Renew Your RN License and APN Certificate
Carefully complete and submit your renewal application. If you're licensed as an RN in the state of Nevada, renewal postcards with PIN numbers for both your RN license and your APN certificate will be mailed to your address two months before your certificate is due to expire. They are mailed to your address on record, so it's very important to inform the Nevada State Board of Nursing in writing whenever you change addresses. You may change your address by clicking here.
