Board of Nursing

The Board of Nursing is mandated to regulate the practice of registered nurses (RN), practical nurses (LPN), and advanced practice registered nurses (APRN)—nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists, clinical nurse specialists and nurse practitioners and trained medication employees (TME). The Board accredits DC professional nursing and practical nursing programs. It also administers a rehabilitation program, Committee On Impaired Nurses (COIN), established for nurses with impaired practice due to substance abuse or mental illness.

The Board consists of eleven DC residents, seven RNs, two LPNs, and two consumer members appointed by the Mayor with the advice and consent of the DC Council.

LPN Renewals beginning January 2015” CBC/Fingerprinting not required 2015 renewal period.
