Your New Hampshire Nurse License Guide

Applying for a New Hampshire Nurse License

Nurses who do not have an NLC multistate license can apply for licensure by an endorsement through the New Hampshire Board of Nursing (NHBON).

A New Hampshire nurse license application may be completed using the state’s online licensing system, and applicants must pay the endorsement licensure fee (currently $120 for RNs). FBI fingerprint and the criminal record release authorization forms must be filed with the NH Division of State Police, and received and reviewed by the Board of Nursing before a license can be issued.

What You Need To Know About Endorsement

Your Path to Nursing Licensure in New Hampshire

Endorsement, also known as reciprocity, is the licensure process for those who have never held a nursing license in New Hampshire but have successfully passed the NCLEX and currently hold an active nursing license in another state or U.S. territory. Endorsement applicants are required to have 400 hours of active-in-practice within the immediate previous 4 years and show that they have either passed the NCLEX or completed 30 continuing education contact hours within the past two years.

Nurses applying for licensure by endorsement may request an application for a temporary license to allow them to practice nursing in the state while their application is being processed. Applicants can use the NHBON website or the Nursys verification system for their nursing license lookup.

Steps To Renew Your New Hampshire Nursing License

In a Compact Nursing State

Every licensed nurse in New Hampshire must renew her/his license every two years, before midnight of her/his birthday. Licensees are notified by mail approximately 6 weeks before their renewal date.

New Hampshire participates in the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), which allows RNs or LPNs to have one multistate nursing license. Over 30 states are considered a compact state for nursing licenses, which allows travel nurses to take jobs in different locations!
