Nursing Licenses Valid for 60 days after Expiration Date

Posted on March 22, 2018

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs is using a new, online licensing and regulatory database application for nursing. The new webpage for the Michigan Professional Licensing User System (MiPLUS) includes additional resources, such as “how to” instruction videos and frequently asked questions.

While the majority of licensees are able to use MiPLUS to renew or modify licenses, the state has made dedicated staff available for any licensee who needs assistance in updating their profile or making corrections before renewing their license.

Nurses should follow their own hospital’s or health system’s protocols regarding nurse licensure; however, the Michigan Public Health Code specifies that licenses are valid for 60 days after the expiration date, currently set for March 31, 2018. Even if licensees do not receive a paper copy of their renewed nursing license before the expiration date, nurses can visit the MiPLUS webpage to verify their license has been renewed. For more information, contact Paige Fults at the MHA.
