Washington State Nurse Licensing

In Licensing we work together to guide nursing applicants and nurses through licensing and renewal.

We process all license applications and renewals for:

  • Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners (ARNP)
  • Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN)
  • Nursing Technicians (NTEC)
  • Registered Nurses (RN)

Note: We don’t process applications for Nursing Assistants. The Department of Health (DOH) does.
