Sonographer Conditional Licensure Application

You MUST hold at least one current license in a Primary Modality to apply for a ND Sonographer Conditional License. A primary modality is defined in ND Law 43-62-01(7). You must have a conditional license before you can begin practicing sonography. The conditional license is a two-year license. You will be required to meet certain requirements within the first year to prove you are actively working toward registration. The conditions will be listed in the conditional letter you will received once your license is issued.

There is no fee/charge for this application.

Conditional license is valid for two years and maybe renewed once or upon Board approval. The applicant must submit a request and documentation to renew.

Conditional Licensure Application Process Overview

  1. Complete the Application for Conditional Sonography Licensure and submit the necessary documents.
  2. There is no fee or criminal history record check since you are already licensed by the Board.

Prior to beginning the application please ensure you have all the correct documents.

  • A copy of an official transcript of completing a program, OR
    If you doing on-the-job instead of attending an academic program, please submit a letter from your employer stating that you will be working your registry requirements.
  • Proof of being registry eligible with either ARDMS, ARRT, or CCI. Send a copy of passing one of the exams or copy of printout from registry's online page (ARDMS, ARRT, or CCI) showing you are registered to take the exam.

Progress reports must be submitted after one (1) year to show you are actively working towards your national registry requirements.

To transition your Conditional to a full sonography license:

  • Successfully pass the registry exam.
  • Submit a copy of your registry card or documentation showing you passed the exam to the Board office with a request to transition your conditional license to a full license.
  • The Board does not mail out license certificates. You may print your license from the Licensee Print Licensure Card.

Once you have a full license, each time you renew your registry (ARRT, ARDMS, CCI, NMTCB, etc.), you must submit a copy of your new registry card to the NDMIRTB office. You can upload your card on the Licensee Dashboard.
