CHICAGO – On March 10, 2022, CBRN joined 54 other jurisdictions across the country in providing electronic license verification for registered nurses (RNs). RNs looking to obtain a license by endorsement to practice in another state can now use Nursys for verification of their current and past licensees in participating jurisdictions.

Nursys is the only national database for licensure verification of RNs, licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPN/VNs) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs). Nursys is live and dynamic, and all updates to the system are pushed directly from participating boards of nursing databases through frequent, secured data updates.

The electronic nurse license verification for endorsement component of Nursys is secure and simple to use. It is accessible anytime from anywhere, 24-hours a day, seven days a week at nursys.com. The verification allows nurses to complete this process in the most efficient way possible.

This change only applies to RN verifications. The California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians is not a participant at this time.

About NCSBN
Founded March 15, 1978, as an independent not-for-profit organization, NCSBN was initially created to lessen the burdens of state governments and bring together nursing regulatory bodies (NRBs) to act and counsel together on matters of common interest. It has evolved into one of the leading voices of regulation across the world.

NCSBN’s membership is comprised of the NRBs in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and four U.S. territories — American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and the Virgin Islands. There are three exam user members. There are also 27 associate members that are either NRBs or empowered regulatory authorities from other countries or territories.

Mission: NCSBN empowers and supports nursing regulators in their mandate to protect the public.
