65-1132. Renewal of license for advanced practice registered nurse; reinstatement of lapsed license. (a) All licenses issued under the provisions of this act, whether initial or renewal, shall expire every two years. The expiration date shall be established by rules and regulations of the board. The board shall send a notice for renewal of a license to every advanced practice registered nurse at least 60 days prior to the expiration date of such person's license. Every person who desires to renew such license shall file with the board, on or before the date of expiration of such license:

(1) A renewal application together with the prescribed biennial renewal fee;

(2) evidence of completion of continuing education in the advanced practice registered nurse role, which has met the continuing education requirement for an advanced practice registered nurse as developed by the board or by a national organization whose certifying standards are approved by the board as equal to or greater than the corresponding standards established by the board. These continuing education credits approved by the board may be applied to satisfy the continuing education requirements established by the board for licensed professional nurses under K.S.A. 65-1117, and amendments thereto, if the board finds such continuing education credits are equivalent to those required by the board under K.S.A. 65-1117, and amendments thereto; and

(3) proof of evidence of current licensure as a professional nurse.

Upon receipt of such application and payment of any applicable fee, and upon being satisfied that the applicant for renewal of a license meets the requirements established by the board under K.S.A. 65-1130, and amendments thereto, in effect at the time of initial qualification of the applicant, the board shall verify the accuracy of the application and grant a renewal license.

(b) Any person who fails to secure a renewal license prior to the expiration of the license may secure a reinstatement of such lapsed license by making application therefor on a form provided by the board, upon furnishing proof that the applicant is competent and qualified to act as an advanced practice registered nurse and upon satisfying all of the requirements for reinstatement including payment to the board of a reinstatement fee as established by the board.
