CE Requirements for Nursing Licenses

Every two years, the Minnesota Nursing Board requires nurses to complete the following continuing education contact hours to comply with licensing requirements:

  • 24 contact hours for RN license renewal
  • 12 contact hours for LPN license renewal
  • 24 contact hours for APRN license renewal

At the time of initial licensure or reregistration, your licensure period is determined by the date of licensure as it relates to the month and year of your birth. The licensure period can vary from 6 to 29 months depending upon your date of birth and the start date of your registration period. After this initial period of licensure, your license will be in effect for two years.
