*On November 14, 2013, the Wisconsin Board of Nursing moved to allow the DSPS and the DWD to accept a shortened version of the survey outside of the active renewal cycle, which begins 7-8 weeks prior to the renewal deadline. After the renewal deadline, licensees will need to complete the shortened survey to fulfill the renewal requirements. The shortened version of the survey will be incorporated into the renewal questions and will not be provided as a separate link.FAQ's
regarding renewal and the nursing survey
Wisconsin is a member of the Nurse Licensure Compact, please visit the NCSBN website
for more details.
If you also hold a Wisconsin Nurse Midwife license, please renew that license first. Doing so will automatically renew your Registered Nurse license, unless you are a Primary Resident of another Compact State.
