The Minnesota Board of Nursing must maintain a record of all registered nurses with a current Minnesota license who are certified as advanced practice registered nurses. Advanced practice registered nurses are required to notify the Board each time they are issued a current certificate from a national nurse certification organization acceptable to the Board.
In order that an advanced practice registered nurse's (APRN) name be place on the Minnesota Board of Nursing registry, an APRN must send the Board a copy of a current certificate issued by a national nurse certification organization which meets the criteria established by the Board. Failure by an advanced practice registered nurse to notify the Board of certification status as a clinical nurse specialist, nurse anesthetist, nurse-midwife, or nurse practitioner may result in assessment of penalty fee or disciplinary action.
