***ATTENTION NURSES***

We are currently moving to a new technology platform that, while it should make the renewal process easier for licensees in the future, has resulted in additional time being required for IDFPR to open license renewals online.

Nurses, at this time, your renewal period has not opened. We will send you an email notifying you when the renewal period begins, and you will have an extended renewal deadline of August 31, 2022 (please see our variances for the nursing professions here: https://www.idfpr.com/DPR.asp). Please make sure your email address is up to date with IDFPR by logging in here: https://online-dfpr.micropact.com/.

In addition, nurses who renew their RN, APRN, and FP-APRN license prior to the August 31, 2022 expiration date will have their renewal fee waived. Please note that those renewing late will be charged a late fee in accordance with existing Administrative Rules.
