How do I renew my license?

You may renew online, download a paper renewal form on the Kansas Board of Healing Arts (KBHA) website, or contact KBHA to have a renewal form mailed to you.

To renew online, you will need your KBHA license number, birth date, last 4 digits of your social security number, name, license number of all healthcare professionals who supervise you (if required), continuing education hours, and payment.

How many CEUs does Kansas require?

6 hours of our Real-Time Live Broadcast Courses, plus 6 hours of any combination of our Recorded Live Credit or Self-Directed Courses.

For Kansas RTs a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education for the preceding one year period is required.

From Section 100-55-7 (f) (2) (Continuing education; license renewal) of the KBHA Statutes and Regulations: “At least six contact hours shall be obtained each reporting year from seminars or symposiums that provide for direct interaction between the speakers and the participants.” For live credit hours of this type, you must take our Real-Time Live Broadcast courses (CEUs > Real-Time Live Broadcast).

From Section 100-55-7 (f) (3) (Continuing education; license renewal) of the KBHA Statutes and Regulations: “A nontraditional or alternative educational program shall be defined as one that is not presented in the typical conference setting. Educational programs may be provided by any print medium or presented through the internet or other electronic medium… A maximum of six contact hours each reporting year may be obtained from nontraditional or alternative educational programs.” Our courses on the CEUs > Recorded Live Credit Course Schedule page and our Self-Directed (available 24/7) courses are accepted in Kansas as non-traditional courses.
