APRNs licensed in New Hampshire MUST maintain National Certification from one of the organizations listed below in order for their NH APRN license to be considered valid.

An APRN whose certification lapses is considered to have an invalid NH APRN license and if s/he continues to practice in the APRN role, is considered practicing without a license.

Recent legislation has removed the specialty types for APRN licenses. We have received calls from pharmaceutical companies requesting the specialty type for individual licensees for purposes of making sample medications available. If you wish to be placed on a voluntary list located on this website please email to and we will add your name and business address.

Senate Bill 66 (effective 7/21/2009) has changed the ARNP designation to APRN.
