In the state of Florida, you can easily look up, verify, and/or monitor your nursing license online. This means you can look up your license, obtain verification to send out of state or anywhere that requires proof of your license in order to get a job, and check in to make sure that there are no issues with your license.
If you need assistance with any part of this process or find a legal issue connected to your license that you need help managing, Florida Healthcare Law Firm can help.
How Do I Use the Florida Nursing License Lookup?
In order to look up your license, simply go to Nursys and click on the button that says “Look up license.”
There will be other options available, such as registering your nursing license for automatic status updates on things like expiration or changes to your license status and requesting a verification as a requirement for working in another state, but the button for looking up a license will be right there on the home page.
Once you click on the button, you will be asked to agree to their terms and conditions, and then prompted to enter your information. You can search by name, license number, or NCSBN ID.
If you choose to search by name, for example, you will be asked to enter this information:
- First and last name
- License type (e.g., PN, RN, APRN-CNP, APRN-CRNA, APRN-CNS, or APRN-CNM)
At any point in this process, you can also sign up for free license status updates, which is recommended.
How Do I Find My Nursing License Number?
If you don’t know your nursing license number, you can still look up your nursing license in Florida via the Nursys website.
Simply choose the option to search by name only, and you will not be prompted to enter your license number. When you find your license number, make a note of it and keep it in a safe place for future reference.
What if I Got My Nursing License Outside of Florida?
If you got your nursing license outside of Florida, you can still use this service to find your license unless you got your nursing license in Michigan or, in some cases, want to look up an advanced practice license. Almost all states are included in this database, and many boards of nursing for advanced practice also utilize this service.
