The Tennessee Board of Nursing is known by many nicknames, abbreviations and synonyms, which all refer to the same Board.  These other names include Tennessee BON, TN BON, Tennessee State Board of Nursing and Tennessee Department of Nursing.

The mission of the TN BON is to protect the general welfare of people by ensuring that medical professions in the State are competent to practice safely.  The Board actively regulates

  • Medical practices
  • Education through nursing NCLEX requirements
  • TN BON license verification
  • Nursing license renewals
  • Standards like Continuing Nursing Education (CNE)
  • Opening a complaint channel for the public to uphold quality service from all medical staff in the state

All CRNAs are required to apply for both a RN and CRNA license at the TN BON and States they are applying for jobs. To clarify, please note that in many states, the physical BON office location may be different from the BON mailing address.
