New License Expiration Date: Thanks to Senate Bill 39, which passed during the 2021 Legislative Session, the deadline for nurses and nursing assistants to renew their licenses or certificates on their birthdays will move from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm, effective January 1, 2022.  This means that instead of renewing your license or certificate the day before your birthday, you will be able to renew on your actual birthday.  Most licensees won't even notice the change, but it should help hundreds of last-minute licensees avoid late fees.  Check our License Verification system in 2022 to see your new license expiration date.

Visit the OSBN Proposed Administrative Rules page for information on how to testify at upcoming rule hearings, participate in upcoming rule advisory committees (RACs) or other task forces, or listen to board meetings.
Regarding COVID-19:  As directed by the Department of Administrative Services, the Board of Nursing offices remain closed to the public until further notice.  For pandemic-related information for nurses, please visit the OSBN COVID-19 information webpage or review the list of nurses and nursing assistants granted an emergency authorization to practice in Oregon.  For information about Oregon's efforts to combat the virus, visit Governor Brown's COVID-19 information page, the Oregon Health Authority COVID-19 page, or the OHA's COVID-19 vaccination page
