Professional License Examination

Eligibility to take the nursing licensure examination also requires compliance with the "good moral character" licensure requirement established by Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 112, Section 74 (Board of Registration Policy 00-01). This includes evaluation by the Board of Registration in Nursing of all misdemeanor and felony convictions, and discipline by a licensure/certification body. Individuals convicted of certain crimes are permanently excluded from nurse licensure in Massachusetts. Applicants are advised to contact the Board of Registration for further clarification.
