Pennsylvania Licensure Information and Requirements
For updated information on licensure requirements and fees, please visit the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing website or call toll-free at 1-833-367-2762.

- Complete 3 hours of Board-approved continuing education on child abuse recognition and reporting.
- Have your school submit an official transcript directly to the Board identifying the RN education that qualified you for your original license.
- Verification of licensure from every state you have been licensed to work in. Verification can be achieved through Nursys® or the original state of licensure.
You can apply for a Temporary Practice Permit by answering a question within the Endorsement application.
Licensure fees for RNs and LPNs are as follows:
- Licensure by endorsement – $120
