As of 2015, nursing education programs that have approval from the California Board of Nursing include state and private schools that offer associate, bachelor, master's and other degrees. Visitors to the CBN website can also view disciplinary actions in effect for certain schools. Continuing education programs are sometimes required for license renewal.
The CBN website provides instructions in license status options, such as active, inactive and lapsed, renewal cycles and notices. The website's web portal has application forms for the Licensure by Examination, Public Health Nurse Certification, Nurse Anesthetist Certification and Continuing Education Provider.
Those who are members of the military, as well as their spouses, may be able to receive renewal fee waivers. Also available are expedited licenses for spouses of active duty military members.
An email subscription service enables individuals to receive updates of new features, meeting agendas and minutes, legislative and regulation updates, and nursing practice act updates. The service is available for free.Learn more about Careers
