You’ve graduated from nursing school and have been working as a nurse for a while. You think it’s time to take the next step in your career, but first you have to get licensed! To practice as an RN in Michigan, you need to be certified by the state board of nursing and licensed by the state board of nursing. You also need to be a U.S citizen or legal resident or hold a non-immigrant visa that permits employment in this country; pay application fee; undergo drug screening test. If you meet all these requirements then please follow the steps below:
nursing board license verification
1. The baccalaureate degree in nursing, master’s degree in nursing, Doctor of Nursing Practice and post-graduate APRN certificate at the University of Michigan School of Nursing are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, 655 K Street NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001

Some states have specific requirements for licensure and/or certification. Licensure and/or certification requirements vary from state to state. It is recommended that each student applying for licensure or certification check with their state boards prior to enrollment in a program.
2. Certification credentials in nursing practice (RNs) require verification with both the Board of Nursing in the state where the nurse practices and with the Board of Nursing for the state where the nurse was educated.
The above board of nursing license verification process involves two states: the state where you practice, and the state where you were educated. The “state where you were educated” does not need to be your home state, nor does it even have to be in the same region as your current practice location. For example, if a nurse who was originally trained in California moves to New York and begins working there as an RN, they would still need their license verified by both California’s Board of Nursing (BON) and New York’s BON.
However, if a nurse whose original training was done in Ohio decides to move across country and work as an RN out of California instead—a popular move for many nurses—they wouldn’t need their licenses verified by either Ohio or California because (as is often the case), neither would be their primary place of employment anymore! Instead, this nurse would only require a single license verification from either one or both of these boards depending on which one issued them theirs first during their career change back when they lived in Ohio originally before moving westward across America’s heartland toward sunny Southern California…
3. Michigan does not require RNs to have a continuing education requirement for renewal unless he/she was disciplined for failure to meet standards of practice or until a request has been made on behalf of a client/patient.

The Board will grant an RN license without requiring proof of current licensure if the applicant meets all other requirements and:
4. To check whether your license is valid in Michigan or any other state, you should contact each state directly.
If you’re unsure about whether your license is valid in another state, contact the board of nursing for that state directly. Each state has its own requirements and procedures for verifying licenses issued by other states. To find out more about how to check whether your license is valid in Michigan or any other state, please see our [FAQ](https://www.nursingboardverification.org/faq/) page.
5. States have different requirements so make sure you check what they are before trying to get your license!
The first thing you need to do is contact each state directly and find out what requirements they have for getting your license. Each state has different requirements, so make sure you check what they are before trying to get your license!
Some requirements may include: taking courses or testing, taking a class on the laws of nursing in that state, renewing your license every few years (or month/year), etc.
Whatever your profession, it’s important to stay on top of state licensing requirements. The more you know about what it takes to become licensed in your field, the better prepared you’ll be when applying for jobs or starting new endeavors as an entrepreneur.
