The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (“IDFPR“) has recently announced that the deadline to renew Illinois Registered Nurse and Advanced Practice Nurse licenses have been extended from May 31, 2022 to August 31, 2022.
Usually during renewal periods, nurses would expect to receive renewal information from the IDFPR via email in the beginning of April. However, the IDFPR has stated that they are currently in the process of implementing a new technology platform which has created a need to delay the renewal process for several months.
In addition, for all nurses who renew their licenses by the new August 31, 2022 deadline, the IDFPR will waive all renewal fees. Those that fail to renew by the new deadline will still be charged a late fee. In order to receive renewal information and reminders from the IDFPR, and to hopefully prevent missing the new August deadline, please confirm that the IDFPR has your current, active email address.
