The State Board of Nursing of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is your one-stop shop for all things related to a Pennsylvania Nursing License. First, you must determine if you are going to get your license by exam or endorsement as these are the two primary pathways to obtain your PA RN license. All applications and renewals can be done online through the PALS system: Sign in or create your account at www.pals.pa.gov.
Let’s look at the differences of applying by endorsement vs. exam according to the Pennsylvania SBON:
Renewal of existing Registered Nurse Licenses:
On average, renewal licenses for RNs are issued within three calendar days. As of July 2019, the RN biennial renewal fees increased from $65 to $122. Nurses must complete their renewal before the license has expired.
Pennsylvania is not currently a member of the nurse licensure compact (NLC) but there is legislation pending. Nurses licensed in other states may apply by endorsement. New graduates take the NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-PN. For more information on the Nurse Licensure Compact, visit this link.
