Prior to mailing any application (registration application, examination application, license renewal, etc.) to the Board, we strongly encourage all individuals to review their application and verify the application is complete and includes all required forms and appropriate fees. A completed application provides the best opportunity to avoid delays in approving the applicant for the licensure examination and any lapses in licensure that may affect licensees' current employment. The Board cannot expedite applications except when allowed by law. Currently, only military veterans and spouses/domestic partners of active duty members can request an expedite by using the following forms:
The Board recently transitioned to a new database system. The "BreEZe" database system includes the ability for submitting various applications online, which we will be implementing in a staggered basis. To see the implementation timeline, check out our "Pathway to Breeze" information!
