My License

The Minnesota Board of Nursing regulates and licenses nurses.

The Board’s mission is to protect the public’s health and safety through regulation of nursing education, licensure, and practice through:

  • Licensing;
  • Education;
  • Discipline/complaint resolution;
  • Nursing practice standards;
  • Data.

The Board of Nursing holds nurses accountable for conduct based on legal, ethical, and professional standards.

Once a license is issued, the Board monitors licensees’ compliance with state law and takes action against the licenses of nurses who have exhibited unsafe nursing practices and present a risk of harm to the public.
