Renewing a License While Under Investigation

You are under investigation and it is time to renew. Here are some answers to common questions:

1. Go ahead and renew. Do not put your life and job on hold while you wait for the Board to complete their investigation. If you have any difficulty getting your license renewed, contact an experienced attorney. For example, if the Board tells you that you cannot renew due to the investigation or due to formal charges being filed.

2. Start the renewal process as soon as you are able to. The Board allows you to renew 60 days prior to the end of your renewal period. For example, if your renewal month is June, you could start the process on May 1. You want to start early because you will most likely have to submit the renewal by mail and not do it online.

3. The Board has stated that the answer is "no" to the question "Are you currently the target or subject of a grand jury or governmental agency investigation" if you are under a current Board investigation because obviously the Board knows if they are investigating you. This question is asking about any other Board/agency or grand jury investigation.

4. Take your time and answer each question truthfully. Keep a copy of your renewal (actually every nurse should do this for every renewal, not just when under investigation and fyi you are able to make a copy of each renewal page when online)
