How to apply for RN/LPN Licensure

*We will be launching the Nevada Nurse Portal that allows Nevada licensees/certificate holders and prospective applicants to manage their initial and renewal applications online, submit requests electronically and view their license/certificate status. Click here for more information.*

Once the Nevada Nurse Portal is available, you will no longer submit paper applications. Applications will be submitted via the Nevada Nurse Portal.

Some Internet browsers are omitting the name/address portion of the applications.  Please be sure your application contains this information before submitting it.
