West Virginia Nursing License Verification

License verification for RN license endorsement purposes is handled through Nursys.

All currently active West Virginia RN Licenses expire on October 31 of each year. The renewal period will begin September 1, and you must renew your license by October 31 or your RN license will lapse. Renewals can be done completely online. Pay a visit to the West Virginia Board of Nursing to begin the licensing process.

There are two options:

  • Licensure by Exam
  • Licensure by Endorsement from Another State

Licensure by exam is available to new nurse graduates who need to take the NCLEX, and Licensure by Endorsement is for RNs who already hold an active license in another state.

West Virginia Licensing Fees

  • Endorsement Without Temp Permit - $100.00
  • Endorsement With Temp Permit - $125.00
  • Endorsement with 90-day Temporary Permit ONLY - $25.00
  • Licensure by Examination - $70.00
  • RN Renewal - $67.00

West Virginia And The Nurse Licensure Compact

West Virginia is now part of the Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC). This allows nurses with one compact license to practice across state lines in any other state within the compact as long as they meet the Uniform Licensure Requirements.

The process to convert from a single state license to a multistate license if your primary state of residence is WV begins by completing the application at the West Virginia Board of Nursing and selecting the RN Multistate Conversion Form. The process is outlined in the flowchart document. The cost of the multistate conversion application is $7.16.
