Listing Renewal

All applications MUST be submitted online. No exceptions.
If your Nurse Aide II listing expired in the past 24 months, you are required to successfully complete the competency evaluation portion of the Nurse Aide II Program to be eligible for renewal.

If your Nurse Aide II listing expired in excess of 24 months, you are required to successfully complete a Nurse Aide II Program to be eligible for renewal.

Allow 5-7 days before your expiration date to complete this process.

Online submission of your renewal application must not be construed as automatic renewal of your listing. The North Carolina Board of Nursing must verify that you have met all the conditions for renewal before your listing is renewed.

Upon successful completion of the online application, you may check your application status via Nurse Gateway. Licensure information can be verified on the Board's website. The Board of Nursing’s electronic database serves the primary source of licensure information for nurses in North Carolina.
