Ohio Requirements as a Host State

The Board of Nursing does not regulate post licensure nursing programs, including graduate programs that prepare registered nurses as APRNs.  

APRN students engaging in practice in Ohio, must hold a current, active and valid Ohio RN license, and any practice as an APRN student must be supervised and under the auspices of the program to meet the APRN licensure exemption in Section 4723.32, Ohio Revised Code.

APRN program faculty, teaching assistants or preceptors who are supervising the APRN student’s Ohio clinical practice must also hold a current, active and valid Ohio APRN license.
