Welcome to the Board of Registered Nursing

ATTENTION RENEWAL APPLICANTS: Please read the instructions carefully when completing your Renewal Notice as the format has recently changed. ALL questions must be answered by checking the appropriate boxes. If we receive an incomplete Renewal Notice, your payment will be processed but your license will NOT be renewed.

Nurse Practitioner Furnishing (NPF) numbers cannot be renewed online at this time. We are currently working on this issue and hope to have this service available soon. We will update our website as more information becomes available.

Pursuant to Business & Professions Code Secton 208, beginning April 1, 2014, a fee of $6 shall be assessed annually ($12 per renewal period) on Nurse Practitioner Furnishing (NPF) and Nurse Midwife Furnishing (NMF) licensees to pay for reasonable costs associated with the operating and maintaining of CURES.


We are experiencing delays in processing applications. Currently, we are conducting initial evaluations on applications for which payment was cashiered in March.


The Board of Registered Nursing regulates the practice of registered nursing and certified advanced practice nurses in order to protect the public. The Board exists to protect the health and safety of consumers and promote quality registered nursing care in California.
