Online Licensure Information
The university has reviewed the educational requirements for licensure and indicated below whether or not the programs meets, does not meet or has not determined if the program meets the educational requirements in the table below. However, states often require additional items for licensure including, but not limited to: background check, letters of reference, continuing education and certification examinations. The state requirements are subject to change at any time based on the state’s discretion. The university encouraged students to verify the current requirements with the state directly and routinely check for updates.
You may also visit the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) website for more information on individual state licensure requirements.
While Walsh University can provide initial guidance, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to continually check the state where you intend to seek licensure and to confirm all licensing or certification requirements. Some states will require additional licensure requirements which could include an application, post-graduate examinations, background checks, licensing fees, etc.
Licensing board contact information is provided for each state and program above. Please contact your program advisor with any further questions.
