The Mission of the Idaho Board of Nursing is to regulate nursing practice and education for the purpose of safeguarding the public health, safety, and welfare.
Establishing a Nurse Portal account is the first step for initial licensure by exam, license by endorsement, and renewals of all license types. Required external forms are on the Forms/Instructions web page. If you have questions about the Nurse Portal, contact the Board office at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
