How to Apply for a Nursing License in Connecticut

New Found Freedom to Pursue Your Personal Goals

Registered nurses who hold a current out-of-state license can apply for Connecticut nursing licensure by endorsement through the Connecticut State Department of Public Health. When applying for your Connecticut RN license, you will need to provide:

  • Verification of all RN licenses held, current or expired.
  • A completed application and fee in the amount of $180.00.
  • License applications are only accepted online.

Official nursing school transcripts are normally not required as long as the Nursys system contains your educational information. Otherwise, you will need to work with the Connecticut Board of Nursing to provide that information.
