The Nursys nurse licensure and disciplinary database is the repository of the license and disciplinary data of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing ("NCSBN") member boards of nursing. Through a written agreement, participating individual boards of nursing designate Nursys as a primary source equivalent database. NCSBN posts the information in Nursys when, and as, submitted by the individual boards of nursing. NCSBN may not make any changes to the submitted information and disclaims any responsibility to update or verify such information as it is received from the individual boards of nursing. Nursys displays the dates on which a board of nursing updated its information in Nursys.

NCSBN grants you a limited, non-exclusive and non-transferable license to access the Nursys database to verify your licensure and disciplinary history for purposes of licensure, endorsement and/or employment. This license does not permit, or include the right to, any reproduction, reuse, sale or other commercial or derivative use of any Nursys data. You are prohibited from any downloading or copying of any data for any third party's use or from accessing the Nursys database with any data mining or automated data gathering or extraction tools.

If you are a nurse who challenges the content, accuracy or completeness of your individual records displayed on Nursys®, you may contact the NCSBN Nursys® Administrator and register a challenge. NCSBN shall promptly forward your challenge to the involved board of nursing for resolution. You shall be notified of the resolution and any available right of appeal through the board of nursing.
