Nursys Overview


Nursys is the only national database for verification of nurse licensure, discipline and practice privileges for RNs, LPN/VNs and APRNs licensed in participating jurisdictions, including all states in the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC).

There are three Nursys services publicly available via

  • e-Notify
  • Nurse License Verification
  • Licensure QuickConfirm

Nursys e-Notify

For Institutions

e-Notify for Institutions is a free of charge innovative nurse licensure notification system where you receive real-time notifications about nurses you employ. The system provides licensure and publicly available discipline data directly to you as the information is entered into the Nursys database by participating boards of nursing.

For Nurses

e-Notify for Nurses helps nurses easily manage their licenses at no cost to them. Once enrolled, a nurse will get automatic notifications about license status, license expiration, license renewal or publicly available disciplinary actions or alerts.


The NCSBN ID is a unique nurse identifier (UNI) assigned to every nurse upon their first licensure with a board of nursing (BON). It’s the only UNI for all nurses and allows concise communication among systems while still protecting a nurse’s personal identifiable information (PII).
