Just a question for those of you practicing in Michigan: I am a Primary Health Care (Family) NP in Ontario. I have a Michigan RN license and am a US citizen. I would like to write the AANP exam to obtain US (Michigan) license. My question is not about how to do that. The question relates to recent practice. In Ontario you must attest to having worked so many hours as an NP in Ontario in the past 3 years or you are ineligible for renewal. Is it the same in Michigan or do you merely have to be working somewhere as an NP? I have had no difficulty with renewing my RN license in Michigan though I have not practiced there since 2007. Does anyone know? I have looked on the LARA (Board of Nursing) MI site but have been unable to find the answer to my question. Thx!

I do not know the 'exact' answer to your question but as an APN student myself, I will share my thoughts! lol Since you will be sitting the Board Certification in the US for the first time, - you will have to prove education + clinical hours. Your Ontario license should validate these from the educational standpoint... In Michigan, to get an APN license, you must have an MI - RN license + education + Board Certification... sooo if you get the Board Certification and already have the RN license in good standing, it doesn't seem like there would be an issue to getting your MI - APN license. Renewal may be tricky if after you get the MI APN license you don't practice here for a period of time.... Good luck. Lisa

If I remember right, Michigan only requires national certification during the initial application for nursing specialty certification as an NP. Subsequent renewals only require completion of the renewal application, payment of the fee, and meeting CE requirements. Current national certification nor practice hours are not asked or required for renewal. However, should you decide to renew your AANP, I believe practice hours are required.

Note: last year I practiced in Michigan was in 2009 so things might have changed.
