Online license renewal


NOTE: Name changes cannot be completed using our online services. If you have a name change, before you renew your license online you must submit your request (Request for Name Change form) to our office via U.S. Mail. You must enclose with the request a CERTIFIED copy (not a photocopy) of your marriage license, divorce decree, or other legal document which supports your name change. Please note that the CERTIFIED document is required by our office. It will not be returned to you. You can call the courthouse where the document was filed to obtain a CERTIFIED copy to mail to our office. Please note that a name change request at the time you are renewing your license will increase the amount of time needed to complete your renewal process. It is strongly advised that you complete the process early in the renewal season to allow for this additional time without further fees being assessed to you.

This process MUST be completed with our office BEFORE renewing your license online.

First, the name change form and the required CERTIFIED documents must be received by our office via U.S. Mail. Once the change is completed and updated on our system, the name change will be reflected on your My Account page. When you see the name change completed on your account, you can then renew your license online.

IMPORTANT: Once you have completed and submitted your online renewal application, or, if you choose to renew your license without completing the name change process first, your license WILL BE processed with the current name that is reflected on our system and your My Account page. You will then be charged an additional fee of $30.00 for a duplicate license to be issued with the name change. There are no exceptions to this additional fee once the renewal has been submitted.

The name on your license is the name you must use when signing nursing notes, medication administration records, etc.
