Attention CRNAs: Important Additional Requirement for Licensure in our state is Explained. Thanks!

Please be aware of the newly enforced Board of Nursing Rules in our state with regards to licensure. In 2018 the Maine Board of Nursing adopted a rule regarding obtaining initial licensure and re-licensure in the state of Maine. As of this summer, and effective immediately, the rules will be enforced. A message from the Maine State Board of Nursing will be sent to each practicing CRNA in our state in the next few weeks. Please be on the look out for this important message. It’ll also be available on the BON website very soon.  For more information on licensure, read here.

Thank you to our Sponsors
