Welcome to the Oklahoma Board of Nursing online application system! You may use this system to apply online for a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) license, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) license, Advanced Unlicensed Assistant (AUA) certificate, or prescriptive authority recognition. You may also use this system to apply for reinstatement of your RN or LPN license, APRN license, AUA certificate, or prescriptive authority recognition.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN, READ THE APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY to be sure that you have selected the right application, that you meet the requirements to be eligible for the selected license, certificate, or recognition and that you are aware of additional documentation to be submitted. Application instructions are provided in the link shown by each application. The instructions thoroughly describe the Board's requirements for licensure.
In addition, please review the requirements for documentation as stated in the instructions and application that must be submitted to the Board office to complete the application. After you have finished filling out the application online, links for required forms will be provided. These forms can also be found in the Forms/Applications link on the Board's website.
After you have submitted the online application, you will receive an email confirmation, as well as links to the additional forms that must be submitted to complete your application file. Your application is not complete until these additional forms have been received in the Board office.
After the application and all required documentation are received in the Board office, the application will be reviewed and processed as quickly as possible. You may review the current processing times of completed applications on the Board's website in the Agency Data / Statistics / Quarterly Statistics link.
Please be aware that if you submit an incorrect application, you will be required to submit the correct application and fee. This will delay the processing of your application; therefore, please be sure that you select the correct application before you begin.
Please be aware that application fees are non-refundable, even if it is determined that you do not meet the qualifications for the license, certificate, or recognition. Submission of an application does not guarantee approval of the application. Each application is carefully evaluated by Board staff members to ensure statutory requirements are met.
In addition to the application fee, there is a $3.50 online processing fee for each application, which is payable to the online service provider. The online processing fee is used to pay the usage fee charged by your credit card company or bank, as well as to support online services provided by the State of Oklahoma. The $3.50 online processing fee will appear as a separate charge on your credit card or bank statement.
We trust that you will find the online application process efficient and effective. Feel free to let the Board know if the online application process can be improved.
