My California R.N. license is expired. Can I renew my nursing license without taking the exam again?

If it has been less than eight years since your license expired, you may submit a delinquent renewal fee and proof of 30 hours of continuing education within the prior two-year period. If more than eight years have passed, you may submit a delinquent renewal fee, 30 hours of continuing education, and proof of competency to practice by either a verification of a current active license in another state, or by retaking the licensing exam.
