If your state license is pending, leave “Board of Nursing APRN Certificate #” blank.

$200 Registration Fee – must be personal check or credit card (credit cards are charged 5% processing fee)


DEA Licensure

During your initial onboarding call with your Provider Recruitment Coordinator, you will discuss whether you will need to apply for a new DEA or transfer the address on your existing DEA to ensure you meet the necessary deadlines for credentialing.

New DEA Registration: Once your application is processed, the Board of Pharmacy will issue you a pending registration number to apply for a new DEA. Please note: you will not receive your pending registration number until you have an active state license in Nevada.

Once you have received a copy of your DEA certificate with NV address, please send a copy to the Nevada State Board of Pharmacy. You will then be able to apply for a Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) account. Instructions for the PMP application are included in Step 3 of the Nevada State Board of Pharmacy Controlled Substance Application. Once your PMP application has been approved, the Nevada State Board of Pharmacy will issue your Controlled Substance (CS) license.  


Collaboration Agreement Forms

Note: The Collaboration Agreement Forms only apply to Advance Practice Providers (APPs).

The original forms must be mailed to:
