Question:

Dear Donna,

I am an RN in Iowa and just renewed my license. Is there a grace period after the expiration date?

Expired License

Dear Donna replies:

Dear Expired License,

The Iowa Board of Nursing does have a grace period, as stated on their website (www.nursing.iowa.gov/licensure/late_renewal.html). Do whatever you have to do to get your license up-to-date as soon as possible. If you have any additional questions or concerns or are beyond the grace period stated, contact them immediately by phone or email to see what your next step is.

Best wishes,
Donna
