Update Compact RN License Information for NP-Expiration Date

This application allows you to update/change the RN information in the NC Board of Nursing's records for another compact state license. Once the application is submitted, we will verify the information with the compact state.  There is no cost for this process.

If NC is now your primary state of residence, you must apply for a NC RN license. Per 21 NCAC 36.0702(2), a nurse changing primary state of residence from one compact state to another may practice in the new home state (new primary state of residence) with the prior home state’s license, for a period not to exceed 90 days.

Notice: Please read all information before starting the application process. The link for the application is located at the bottom of this page.
