Attention Nebraska Mental Health Practitioners: As of 6/28/21, the governor has announced that the COVID-19 State of Emergency expires on 6/30/21. As a result, mental health licenses that were deferred per Executive Order 20-10 will have their expiration dates extended to 10/31/21, and must be renewed by that date. If the license has already been renewed, this deferral and extension does not apply. Additionally, within the next 30 days, the Licensure Unit will send a postcard to those licensees who have not renewed, advising that they will have until 10/31/21 to renew.
