Nursing License and Renewal Minnesota

Nursing Guidelines and Renewal Process

Why are travel nurses  flocking to Minnesota? It's routinely been ranked the best states for nurses to work in and Minnesota came in first for work environment and ranked No. 2 overall nationwide. While this makes it a great Midwest state, it has yet to join the NLC, so travel nurses are less likely to choose this location. The prestigious Mayo Clinic is located in Rochester and also landed on the Top 100 on the 2019 Becker's Hospital Review.

If you're looking to land a travel nursing job in Minnesota, the team at AMN Healthcare is here to help as well as help you obtain your Minnesota nursing license.

A Simplified Process for Licensing in Minnesota

Applicants for an RN license have the opportunity to do so by examination or endorsement. An examination is for newly-graduated nurses, while endorsement is for RNs who hold an active license in another state. Nurses must submit a Licensure by Endorsement Application form or Licensure by Examination form and pay the non-refundable fees.

The application fee is $138.25.

To apply by examination or endorsement you will need the following items:

  • Criminal background check
  • Provide your social security number
  • Completed application
  • Verification of Licensure form (endorsement only)
