Ohio BON Expedited Nurse Licensing Program

USN is working with the Ohio Board of Nursing to help RNs obtain a temporary license to work the upcoming strike in Ohio. 

U.S. Nursing will reimburse your fees up to $110 and assist you through the process if you apply between April 28 - May 10, 2019. 

To be eligible, you must meet the following qualifications:

  • If you took your NCLEX exam in the state of California or your only current license is from California you will not be eligible for this opportunity. 
  • No previous temporary or permanent license in the state of Ohio.
  • Your RN licenses (any and all states) must be free of prior or current disciplinary actions.
  • Your background check will not report any prior or current criminal charges, convictions and misdemeanors to include any that has been pardoned, expunged or dismissed.
