Reinstate Lapsed License

When a South Dakota nursing license is not renewed by the expiration date the license is placed on a lapsed status, practicing on a lapsed license is a violation of law pursuant to SDCL 36-9-49(9).

Once reinstatement requirements are met, you will be mailed a license renewal card that will be valid from the date of issuance to your second birthday thereafter.

Submit the application and send with required documenation and fees to the Board office: Instructions and Application for Reinstatement

You must be reinstated to an active license status prior to resuming nursing practice!
