RN Programs in Utah

Utah RN Programs

Registered nursing is a career for those who want to make a difference in the world. Being an RN offers a challenging and exciting career, as well as job stability. A registered nursing degree makes it possible to work in hospitals, doctors’ offices, and other healthcare facilities. Some people complain about the monotony of other careers, but RNs are guaranteed to face new challenges on a daily basis.

Becoming an RN in Utah

The first step in becoming an RN in Utah is to complete an education program that is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, or Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs.

The following items must be attached with a licensure application:

  • Division of Occupational Licensing (DOPL) application
  • $100 application fee
  • 2 fingerprint cards
  • New graduates: official transcript
  • Those applying for licensure by endorsement: verification of licensure
  • Graduates of foreign nursing schools who have never been licensed: Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) certificate
  • NCLEX registration (if applicable)

Utah is a member of the Nurse Licensure Compact. A nurse who is licensed in a compact state can be granted permission to practice in another compact state without becoming licensed in that state.

The exam used to license RNs in Utah is the NCLEX-RN. There is a $200 registration fee.

Renewing an RN License

RN license renewal in Utah is based on a set date, rather than date of license. All licenses expire on January 31st of odd-numbered years. The first renewal period may be greater or less than 2 years, depending on how far into the 2 year renewal period the license was obtained.
