How to Apply for a Delaware License in Connecticut

Delaware participates in the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC)

If you do not have an NLC multistate license but do hold a current, active nursing license in another state, U.S. territory, or the District of Columbia, you can apply for Delaware nurse licensure by endorsement. Nurse applicants must show they meet one of these practice requirements:

  • Graduation from a nursing education program within the past two years that is deemed acceptable by the Delaware Board of Nursing; or
  • At least 1,000 hours of nursing practice during the last five years; or
  • At least 400 hours of nursing practice during the last two years.

Requirements to Apply for a Delaware License

  • Provide a completed application and fee in the amount of $156.
  • Applications must be printed out, signed and notarized, and mailed with payment to the Delaware Board of Nursing.
  • provide verification of all RN licenses held, current or expired via Nursys for participating states, or via written verification sent to the Delaware Board of Nursing.
  • provide Fingerprinting and authorization for criminal background checks.


It takes approximately four weeks to receive a nursing license in Delaware after all documentation has been received.

How to Renew Your Delaware Nursing License

A Simple Online Process

Nurses can renew their Delaware RN license by completing an online application and paying their renewal fees by credit card. All newly issued RN licenses expire on September 30 of odd years.


To renew, you must attest that you have completed the required continuing education (CE) and that you have practiced nursing at least 1,000 hours in the past five years or 400 hours in the past two years. The number of CE hours required depends on when your Delaware license was issued and how you were licensed.
