Question:

Dear Donna,

I had my license reinstated once and it has now expired again. Can I have it reinstated again?

Needs to be Reinstated

Dear Donna replies:

Dear Needs to be Reinstated,

If you meet the board's requirements for reinstatement, you should be able to reinstate again. However, you will have to contact the board directly about this. It may matter how long it has been since your current license lapsed. Contact them by phone and email and follow up if you don’t hear back after a few weeks. Most boards of nursing receive a high volume of requests and questions and it can take time for a response.

Best wishes,
Donna
