Reinstatement of a Lapsed License

Before applying for licensure, please familiarize yourself with the general licensing policies.


An applicant for reinstatement of a Connecticut license that has lapsed due to nonrenewal shall provide the following documentation:


A completed, notarized application with photo and fee in the amount of $565.00 in the form of a bank check or money order payable to, “Treasurer, State of Connecticut”;


The applicant’s current curriculum vitae (CV) or synopsis of professional activity since completion of your naturopathic education program;


Verification from the appropriate authority confirming your most recent employment; including dates and overall evaluation of your ability to practice with reasonable skill and safety.  If you are in private practice, a letter from another health care practitioner with whom you have referred patients.  Such letter shall indicate dates of the referral relationship and an evaluation of your ability to practice with reasonable skill and safety; and


Verification of all professional licenses ever held (current or expired).  Please contact the state board(s) first, as a fee may be required for completion of the required form.


Any licensee whose license lapses due to non-renewal who applies for reinstatement shall submit evidence documenting successful completion of fifteen (15) contact hours of continuing education within the one-year period immediately preceding application for reinstatement.


Applicants for reinstatement who have been out of the active practice for longer than 6 months are presented to the Connecticut Board of Natureopathic Examiners.  The Department seeks the Board's recommendation as to the applicant's suitability for reinstatement. 


Typically, applicants for reinstatement who have not been in active, clinical practice for longer than five years are required to complete a period of refresher training.  Applicants will receive further information from the Department upon receipt of all required documentation.


Please arrange for all supporting documents to be submitted from the source to:
