Important Address Change Reminder for Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses

Virginia is a participating state in the Nurse Licensure Compact. Change of Address may affect the practice privilege for your Virginia Registered Nurse or Practical Nurse license.

If you have moved to another state, please submit a Declaration of Primary State of Residence Form (PDF Document). The Declaration of Primary State of Residence Form is necessary for the Board to determine your eligibility for a multistate or single-state license in Virginia. "Primary state of residence” is defined by the Compact as “the state of a person’s declared fixed permanent and principal home or domicile for legal purposes.”  Evidence of a primary state of residence may be required.
