Applying for renewal or reinstatement of LNA licensure

Renewal or reinstatement requirements for Nursing Assistants who are listed on the New Hampshire Nurse Aide Registry

If your license is currently active, you can renew if you meet the following requirements:

  • 200 hours active in practice as a nursing assistant within two years under APRN, RN or LPN supervision and 12 continuing education hours per year, a total of 24 continuing education hours within two years; or
  • A written and clinical competency testing completed within two years.

If your license is currently inactive, and you do not meet any of the requirements listed above, you can activate the licensure by successful completion of a written and clinical competency testing. You must e-mail or call the Board office to request a reinstatement application. A list of approved testing facilities will be mailed to you along with your reinstatement application. When you receive your testing results, you can submit your completed reinstatement application along with a copy of your test results and the reinstatement fee to the New Hampshire Board of Nursing.

Please note that when your license is activated, you will not be notified or receive documentation in the mail.

You must check the New Hampshire Board of Nursing website to verify activation and obtain a print out of your license information.
