Nurse License Types Issued by Nebraska
Registered Nurse (RN)
Registered Nurses have completed two to four years of education at a college or university, and passed the NCLEX-RN in order to qualify for licensure. The RN plans and directs the plan of nursing care for patients.
Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)
Licensure follows nine months to one year of education and successful completion of the National Council Licensure Examination Practical Nurse (NCLEX-PN). The LPN provides direct patient care services.
Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN)
An APRN is a registered nurse (RN) with a master's or doctoral degree and national board certification to qualify for licensure. Advanced Practice Registered Nurses apply advanced nursing principals in the provision of patient care services to specific patient populations.
Prescriptive authority is granted to nurse practitioners, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and certified nurse midwives at the time of licensure. No additional documentation or application/permit is required."
