Kentucky BON License Renewal FAQ

How can I renew my license this year?

Nurses will need to renew their license online, by accessing the Kentucky nurse
licensing platform at kbn.ky.gov.

Is the Kentucky BON waiving any renewal requirements this year due to COVID?

 According to the Kentucky BON, no. Regular requirements for the 2021 renewal period are currently in place, such as the October 31, 2021, renewal deadline, continuing education completion, and state fees.

What are the 2021 CE requirements for renewal?

RNs must meet Kentucky’s Continuing Education Competency requirements by
October 31, 2021, in order to renew their license. While there are several different options of meeting this requirement, most nurses choose to complete 14 contact hours of continuing education from an approved provider (such as Nursing CE Central).

Can I renew now, and complete my CEUs later?

Yes. The Kentucky Board of Nursing requires that all continuing education
requirements be met by October 31, 2021, however, nurses may renew online ahead of CE completion

Is there a COVID-related grace period if I miss my renewal deadline?

No. According to the Kentucky Board of Nursing, emergency waivers related to nurse licensing were rescinded on March 5, 2021. Regular renewal requirements are currently back in place for licensees.

What do I need to have ready when starting my renewal online with the Kentucky BON?

Most nurses will only need a valid method of payment to complete their renewal
through the Kentucky nurse licensing platform. Continuing education requirements must be fulfilled by October 31,2021, if not already complete at the time of online renewal.

How can I check that my renewal application is complete?

Nurses will receive a confirmation email from the KBN after their license has been renewed. Nurses can also check on the status of their renewal application through the Kentucky BON’s Basic Validation search tool
(https://secure.kentucky.gov/kbn/bulkvalidation/basic.aspx).

Can I still work/practice if I miss my renewal deadline?

No. Nurses are NOT legally allowed to work in Kentucky with a lapsed nursing license.

How long must I keep documentation proving I completed my 2021 CEU requirements for renewal?

The Kentucky Board of Nursing requires that all licensees keep proof of continuing education completion for each renewal period, for a minimum of five years. This documentation is needed in case a nurse is selected for an audit by the Kentucky BON within that time frame.

*Nursing CE Central stores lifetime copies of all CEU certificates of completion for active members.

What happens if I don't renew my license before the October 31st deadline?

According to the Kentucky Board of Nursing, any nurse who does not renew their
license before midnight on October 31, 2021, will have their license lapse. Nurses can NOT work in Kentucky with a lapsed nursing license.
