License Reinstatement for Nurses
If you’ve had your nursing license suspended or revoked, you have the right to petition the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN) for license reinstatement.
Because the burden of proof will be on you (not on the board) to demonstrate that you’re competent and qualified to resume your regular nursing duties, it would be helpful to have an experienced nurse’s attorney at your side.
Please note: You will need to have your license reinstated if you let it expire. In order to renew your nursing license, you’ll need to pay a delinquent fee in addition to the customary renewal fee. We can also help with license reactivation and issues involving voluntary license surrender.
