Notice of Renewal Application
In 2005, nurses licensed in Kansas
will notice significant changes in renewal notice format. Instead
of receiving a printed renewal application form, each nurse will
receive a Notice of Renewal Application that includes the Nurse’s
license number and directions for online renewal. The card will
also include the options to download
and print a renewal form from the Internet or by returning a
detachable portion of the notice in the provided envelope. Watch
for your Notice of Renewal Application in the mail.
Advantages of renewing online
- Fast—it only takes a few minutes and you
will receive a confirmation when you finish so you will know your
renewal is complete. Your renewed license information will be
available on our License Verification database the day after you
- Convenient—you can complete your renewal
24 hours a day, seven days a week at any location with Internet
- Accurate – you enter all of your information
and the on-line renewal will not allow you to leave required information
blank. Your renewal form won’t be returned because you left
something blank or forgot to sign it.
- No lost payments—you use a credit card or
electronic check to renew.
- No postage required—your renewal notice
won’t be returned to you because you forgot to put a stamp
- Won’t get lost in the mail—the confirmation
you receive will allow your renewal application to be traced should
any problems arise.
There are some cases where individuals are not eligible
to use the online license renewal process at this time. Obtain a
printed renewal form if:
- Initiating or renewing inactive license
- Renewing an exempt license
- If your license has been disciplined, under investigation,
or you have had other legal issues, the system will not allow
you to renew your license online.
- If you have more than one license and you would
only like to renew one.
Employers are encouraged to consider making a computer
with Internet access available for their employees to use at the
work site for the purpose of license renewal. This will accommodate
early license renewal by employees and result in fewer last minute
renewal problems. Remember that renewals postmarked after your license
expiration will be considered lapsed. Any nurse practicing on a
lapsed license can and will be fined. Don’t delay, renew as
soon as you receive the notice to avoid penalties and delays in
receiving your renewed license.
