First time License Renewal in illinois

Published

Hey everyone, I just graduated nursing school and received my license yesterday (1/27) from the Illinois BON. It needs to be renewed In May already. How do I go about renewing it and do I need to get the CEUs by then or does nursing school count towards CEUs?

What does your BON say? That seems so odd... I recall I got licensed for a year (renewed my birthday month of the year after I graduated).
