Welcome to the Idaho Board of Nursing on-line renewal system. Payment of the $90 licensure renewal fee may be made by American Express, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover card. Prepaid credit/gift cards are not acceptable for this process. At the end of the entry screens, you will be able to print a receipt as proof of payment. A wallet-card will be mailed to the address provided with your renewal application within five (5) working days. To avoid a reinstatement fee of $35.00, your license must be renewed before the August 31st expiration date. See attached information regarding "Paperless Licensure".

You must have the following to apply for on-line renewal of licensure:

  • Social security number
  • Idaho nurse license number
  • Date of birth
  • Valid American Express, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit/debit card
  • Valid e-mail address if a printer is not available

You may renew your license on-line three (3) months prior to the expiration date of your current license and up to one (1) year after the expiration date. For any other time period, please contact the Board office at (208) 577-2476. If you have practiced nursing in Idaho since your license lapsed, you may be assessed an administrative fine (please contact the Board office for instructions).

You may not renew your license on-line if one or more of the following apply to you:

  • Your license has lapsed for more than one year.
  • Your primary state of residence is a member of the Nurse Licensure Compact. Compact states currently are Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

NOTE: If you are employed by the United States government (including the Department of Defense), and a license in Idaho is required in order for you to perform your official duties, please check this box and proceed with on-line renewal.
