Pennsylvania Extends Renewal Deadlines for Licensed Practical Nurses

October 1, 2020

On March 27, 2020, due to the COVID-19 emergency, the Department of State requested, and Governor Wolf granted, the extension for 90 days of certain license renewal deadlines for licensees under the State Board of Nursing. This moved their deadline from June 28, 2020, to September 28, 2020.

Due to licensees having difficulty meeting the September 28 deadline, the Department requested an additional 30 days for Practical Nurse renewals. This will be the final extension for this cohort. All renewals are due for this group of licensees on October 31, 2020.
