The November 13, and December 11, 2019 Board meetings will be conducted at the Maryland Board of Physicians, 4201 Patterson Ave, Room 100, Baltimore, MD 21215-2299. The Open Session is open to the public from 9 - 10 a.m.

Effective June 17, 2019, Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses may choose the option of completing thirty (30) Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to satisfy the requirements for license renewal. Please refer to the full regulation for details of the requirements.

NOTE: CEUs are not a mandatory requirement, merely an additional option to qualify for renewal for individuals who have not completed (a) 1,000 hours of active nursing practice within the previous 5 years or (b) a Board-approved nursing education program ​within the previous five years. 


 ​​To be eligible for a license by endorsement, you must have graduated from a nursing program that included a supervised clinical component. Effective September 30, 2018, the Board no longer has the authority to issue a license by endorsement to anyone who has graduated from a nursing program that did not have a supervised clinical component.
