Citizenship/Legal Presence

The Alabama Immigration Law requires that in order to issue or renew a license, each applicant or licensed nurse is required to submit proof of citizenship or legal presence at least once. Submit the appropriate checklist and copies of appropriate documents via email, fax, or mail. Contact information is on the form. Those non-citizens with a permanent resident card are only required to submit proof one time. Non-citizens with other documents are required to submit proof at time of original licensure and at each renewal.
