Arkansas Reminds Nurses to Renew Their Professional Nursing License Online

May 6, 2019

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 6, 2019--During this National Nurses’ Week, May 6-12, the Arkansas State Board of Nursing (ASBN) reminds nurses in Arkansas that they must renew their nursing license online at ar.gov/nurse_renew. This convenient online license renewal system allows nurses to complete their renewal and submit payment electronically, with just a few clicks.

“We are happy to offer a streamlined service for our hard-working nurses in Arkansas,” said Arkansas State Board of Nursing Executive Director Sue A. Tedford. “Nurses perform invaluable work in our communities, and it is our duty to do what we can to make their job easier, especially during a week dedicated to them. They can complete their license renewal online from anywhere and save time and effort.”

In order for a nurse to remain in active status, the ASBN requires a license to be renewed within the 60-day period preceding the expiration date. It is no longer necessary to wait to receive a renewal notice in order to renew. Nurses can renew online at ar.gov/nurse_renew up to 60 days prior to the license expiration date, which should coincide with the last day of the licensee’s birth month.
