Online Form 1 - Application for Licensure for Registered Professional Nurse
All applicants for licensure must initially submit Form 1 along with the $143 licensure and first registration fee. You must answer all questions and provide all information requested unless otherwise indicated. Failure to accurately complete all required parts of the application will delay its review. Additional forms below are required based on the licensure requirements of the profession. Do not use Form 1 to renew your existing license.
If you are applying for licensure as a licensed practical nurse and you did not graduate from a New York State approved nursing program, you must include a copy of your high school or secondary school diploma or transcript in the original language with your Form 1.
If you were educated outside the U.S., include a copy of your nursing diploma in the original language.
