Licensure Information

Review information about how KU School of Nursing's professional program curriculum meets educational requirements for each state.

As of July 1, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education implemented Regulation 34 CFR 668.43 (a) (5) (v) that requires professional nursing programs to provide:

  • a list of all states/jurisdictions where the institution’s curriculum meets state educational requirements for professional licensure or certification,
  • a list of all states/jurisdictions where the institution’s curriculum does not meet state educational requirements for professional licensure or certification, and
  • a list of all states/jurisdictions where the institution has not decided whether the curriculum meets education requirements.

To effectively inform prospective students, statements about nursing licensure have been added to each KU School of Nursing program website.

The following information, by state, is complete and accurate to the extent information is available from a variety of sources. Because licensure information continuously evolves, the School cannot guarantee completeness and accuracy. For more information about individual state’s requirements, please visit the National Council of State Boards of Nursing website.
