Dear License and
Ordinarily, an applicant for renewal that has waited more than 30 days after the expiration of his/her license or certificate to submit a renewal application must do so by submitting the application in paper form.
For those who have elected to postpone renewing their license or certificate in accordance with the Governor's previous executive orders temporarily extending the expiration dates of licenses, permits, and certifications, please be advised that the Governor has issued a revised Executive Order terminating the temporary extension of licenses, permits, and certifications effective June 30, 2021.
To accommodate the anticipated volume of additional renewal applications by those who have postponed renewing their licenses and certificates, the Board will permit licensees and certificate holders to submit their renewal applications electronically, even if you are submitting your renewal application more than 30 days after it was originally scheduled to expire.
If you have elected to postpone renewing your license or certificate in accordance with the Governor's previous temporary extension, then you are strongly encouraged to submit a renewal application online as soon as possible, and, at a minimum, at least 30 days prior to the June 30, 2021 deadline.
If your license or certification has been non-renewed or inactive for greater than one year, please contact the appropriate renewals department via email (see email addresses provided below) for guidance on how to proceed with your renewal.

and Certificate Holder,
Board of Nursing is aware of a potentially fraudulent scheme involving fake
notices to licensees, particularly advanced practice nurses, indicating that
the Board has taken action to suspend the licensee's RN license as a result of
an investigation into purported violations of federal drug trafficking laws and
other CDS laws. The notice advises that the licensee's RN license is suspended
until further notice and instructs the licensee to submit a surety bond or
refundable fee in order to maintain the license. Please be
advised that the Maryland Board of Nursing does not impose or collect a surety
bond or any other refundable or advance fee in connection with its disciplinary
investigations or hearings. Any such notice should be considered
fraudulent and reported to the Board immediately. If you receive a notice
that is printed on the Maryland Board of Nursing's letterhead that you believe
to be fraudulent, please report it to the Board at the following email
Please note the lobby remains closed to the public. All
other services will be provided by appointment only. If you require
in-person assistance with your license or certification, you must request
an appointment (by email only) with the
appropriate department by using the emails links listed below:
If you are requesting an appointment, you must
include "APPOINTMENT" in the subject line of the
email or your request will not be processed. Once your request is reviewed, you
will be contacted by a department specialist with the next available
appointment date and time. You must respond to that email in order to
confirm the appointment or the date will not be reserved.

The Governor has issued an order modifying the previous order regarding the extension of licenses, permits, and certifications. According to this new order, the temporary extension of licenses, permits, and certifications as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic will now end on June 30, 2021.
