Arkansas Nursing License Verification Options

The public, licensees, nursing employers, and other state boards or organizations can obtain verification of licensure information to confirm if an individual holds a current, valid nursing license in Arkansas.  

Do not accept the blue plastic card of a copy of the license verification report as a reliable verification that the person is licensed; check license verification for yourself.

The following options are available for verification of an Arkansas nursing license.

  1. Nursys® Nurses' verification. The Nursys licensure and disciplinary database is the repository of data provided directly from the Arkansas State Board of Nursing and is primary source equivalent.  For participating states, go to www.nursys.com. If the original state of nurse licensure is not a Nursys® participant, contact the original state licensing board.  NOTE:  To verify Arkansas RNP and LPTN licenses you must access the ASBN Registry Search.                                                                                                                             Access and view or download discipline documents as applicable.
