Sec. § 632.341
Renewal and reinstatement of license; transfer to inactive list; issuance of temporary license.


Every nurse licensed under the provisions of this chapter must renew his or her license biennially on a date or according to a schedule of dates prescribed by regulation of the Board. If the date or schedule is changed, the Board may prorate the required fee.


A licensee who fails to renew a license may have the license reinstated by completing an application for renewal, submitting payment of the reinstatement fee in addition to the renewal fee and submitting all information required to complete the reinstatement.


Upon written request to the Board, a licensee in good standing may cause his or her name and license to be transferred to an inactive list, and the licensee may not practice nursing during the time the license is inactive and no renewal fee accrues. If an inactive licensee desires to resume the practice of nursing, the Board, except as otherwise provided in subsection 4, shall renew the license upon demonstration, if deemed necessary by the Board, that the licensee is then qualified and competent to practice, and upon completion of an application and payment of the current fee for biennial renewal of the license.


The Board may:


Issue a temporary license to an applicant for the renewal or reinstatement of a license pending final action by the Board upon the application.


After a hearing, refuse to renew or reinstate the license of any person who, at any time since the most recent renewal of the license or the issuance of the original license if it has not been renewed, has been out of compliance with the requirements of this chapter.
