How do I renew my APRN or CRNA certification?
Advanced Practice Nurses (APRN)
If you are an Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner, Certified Nurse Midwife or Clinical Nurse Specialist, your certification will expire when your RN license expires.
Note: Official verification or certification including issue and expiration dates with category/specialty, must be provided directly to the board by the credentialing agency. If available, online verification directly from the agency is acceptable.
Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA)
If you are a CRNA, that privilege expires when your RN license expires. The Board must receive official certification/re-certification from the National Board on Certification & Re-certification of Nurse Anesthetists in order for you to renew your CRNA privileges.
Note: Arizona State Board of Nursing will obtain online verification directly from the National Board on Certification & Re-certification of Nurse Anesthetists.
