Name / Address Changes

Name / Address Change

This section is provided for a North Carolina licensed nurse to submit a request for a name or address change. Completion of this application will change your name or address in the NC Board of Nursing records.

In accordance with the Nurse Licensure Compact, change of address may affect the practice privilege for your NC nursing license. Click here for more information.

If you hold an RN and an LPN license in NC and are requesting an address change, you must request the change for each license.

To request a name or address change, please access the Name Change Application or Address Change Application located under My Profile once you're logged in to your Nurse Gateway profile.

Allow a minimum of 5 days processing time from the date you submit your request.
