Nursing Licensure

Renewal for the State Board of Nursing for South Carolina APRN, RN and LPN licensees ended at midnight on April 30, 2016. All nursing licenses not renewed by this time are considered lapsed.

Please be reminded that it is not legal to practice nursing without a current, active license. Nurses who did not renew their nursing license by midnight, April 30, 2016 will be sent a Notice. If you wish to reinstate your license go to and complete the reinstatement application. The continued practice of nursing in South Carolina without an active license may violate the provision of S.C. Code of Laws 40-33-30.(A).

Please note that you must have completed and documented your continued competency prior to reinstating your license (and during the period of May 1, 2014 to April 30, 2016). The competency requirement and the competency requirement criteria may be found on this homepage. Do not submit any competency documentation to the Board as you may be randomly audited at any time.

Please go to and click on “Alternative Login I do not know my User ID/ Password” and complete the required security questions.
