Renewing your license is easier and quicker than ever...
The Maryland Board of Nursing is moving to Biennial (two-year) renewals, based on year of birth. For all nurses renewing in
January 2013 and after, those with an Odd year of birth will be renewed for a two year period and pay double the fee. All nurses renewing
in January 2013 and after with an Even year of birth will renew for one year at this time and pay the fee for one year. Beginning from
2014, however, those with an even year of birth will renew for the two year period. Please check the
published on the Maryland Board of Nursings WEB site for renewal costs.
ALL NURSES EXPIRING ON OCTOBER 28, 2014 MUST COMPLETE A
BACKGROUND CHECK IN ORDER TO RENEW. You will be receiving or will have received this information in the mail. It is important that you
use the information provided to you to ensure the speedy processing of your renewal. Please be sure to submit CHRC receipts either by fax (410-358-3530)
or mail to 4140 Patterson Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21215, to the attention of Mr. Jeff Odin.
