New Jersey Board of Nursing

RN/LPN Endorsement Application Process


  1. If you live, work or attend school within 10 miles of the State's borders, you will be sent information regarding the criminal history background check after you submit a completed application. Please check the Zip Code List to verify that you are within 10 miles of the State's borders.


  2. If you live, work or attend school beyond 10 miles of the State's borders, you have the option of using manual fingerprint cards in order to satisfy the fingerprinting requirement. Prior to submitting an application, you must fill out a contact form and  request that fingerprint cards be mailed to you.

To prevent any delays:
Please send all pertinent materials to the New Jersey Board of Nursing at the same time as you submit your paper application or the supporting documents for your online application.
