Vermont NCLEX License Renewal steps

Vermont State Board of Nursing follows a biennial renewal schedule for NCLEX licensed nurses, and the renewal period is every odd year.vermont nclex application

Since 2013 is an odd year, all nurses licensed in Vermont must renew it on or before March 31, 2013 to avoid penalties. Renewal period usually starts at mid-February, and Vermont will send notices to licensed nurses at that time.

Now how do you renew your Vermont Nurse License? Here are the steps:

Online Renewal of Vermont NCLEX License

Go to https://secure.vtprofessionals.org/ and login using the username and password Vermont Board of Nursing gave you in the renewal notice.On the left navigation, click the link Create/Resume a Renewal and then select the license you would like to renew. Answer some questions and pay the renewal fee of $95.

If your license is already expired, you cannot renew it online but must go the paper application instead.

Paper Application for Vermont NCLEX License Renewal

1. Download and print the renewal application from Vermont board of nursing website. The RN renewal application is not yet available and will be posted on February 22, 2013.
2. Completely fill up the application, attach the renewal fee of $95 in bank draft or money order in US currency withdrawable in US banks, payable to ‘Office of the Secretary of State.’ Send it to:

Vermont Secretary of State
Office of Professional Regulation
National Life Building, North FL 2
Montpelier VT 05620-3402

If the completed renewal, along with all supporting documentation, is not received by the expiration date you will be required to pay a late renewal penalty. The penalty is $25.00 for renewals submitted less than 30 days late. Thereafter, the penalty increases by $5.00 for every additional month or fraction
of a month, not to exceed $100.00.

Additional info on Vermont NCLEX Renewal

  • Starting March 2015 renewal cycle, all Vermont nurses must have US SSN to renew. No exceptions.
  • You must have practiced nursing in the last 5 years to renew if you graduated from nursing program more than 5 years.
  • If you are not in the US and there’s no way you can practice nursing in Vermont, there’s an option to put it in Inactive status instead of renewing your license every time. I’ll make a separate post about it, so keep it here.

That’s it. If you have further questions on Vermont NCLEX Renewal, just make a comment below.

  5. Hi Sir Noy,

    The VT BON will require SSN when renewing licenses starting December 31st of this year right? In my case, mylicense will expire February next year so can I renew it before December 31, 2014 instead so that they won’t require me the SSN?

    Thanks and more power. 🙂

    Once your license is past the expiration date and becomes INACTIVE, you cannot renew it online.

    The way to renew an Inactive license is with the paper renewal application form with your fee sent to us by either postal mail or courier. A link to the form is https://www.sec.state.vt.us/media/518048/Renewal-Form-Registered-Nurse_RN_-March-2013.pdf

    So long as you have been working at the level of your RN license (anywhere in the world where you are licensed as an RN) and can meet the practice requirement of 50 days (400 hours) in the last 2 years, or 120 days (960 hours) in the last 5 years, you may renew your license.

    NOTE: You must submit verification of employment from your employer(s) on the employer’s letterhead. The document must include the date range of your employment (mm/dd/yyyy – mm/dd/yyyy) and the total number of hours worked within the past 5 years.

    If your passport number has changed, please include a copy of your current passport.

    The cost is $240 USD total (that is $140 renewal fee + late fee of $100).

    Make your demand draft, money order, or U.S. check payable to Vermont Secretary of State. Payment must be in U.S. dollars and drawn through a U.S.-affiliated bank.

    A late renewal without SSN can be submitted until December 31, 2014 and the expiration will be March 31, 2015.

  9. Hi! My NCLEX RN VERMONT LICENCE will expire on March 31, 2015. I’m working in the Philippines and I’m planning to renew it before Nov. 30, 2014. I just want to know what are the needed requirements for the renewal?
    I’m looking forward for your response. Thanks and God bless! 🙂

  10. My Vermont RN license will expire on March 2015, and for its renewal will require an SSN. So will it be automatically be put in an Inactive Status? I am in the Philippines and has no work authorization yet in the US because of the retrogression. When can i renew my license? when can i secure an SSS number? What will happen to my license will everything be wasted? all the efforts, the costs and time in securing that NCLEX license? I passed the NCLEX in 2006 and renewed it every expiration dates. Hope the the Vermont BON will give considerations to foreign nurses who are still waiting for opportunities to work in the US. Is there anybody who can tell me that the US is now hiring foreign nurses?
    Tell me where to apply. thanks.
