Nursys e-Notify Terms & Conditions

Please read and certify that you have read the Disclaimers and terms and conditions for access to the Nursys database and to use the Nursys e-Notify service. If you are an employer of nurses, you must also certify your compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act ("FCRA") below. Also refer to additional Terms of Use and Privacy & Security policies for NCSBN websites.

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. 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.

As part of the registration process, you must select a username and password. You may not (i) use a username of any another person with the intent to impersonate that person, (ii) use a username subject to the rights of any other person without authorization, or (iii) use a username that NCSBN, in its sole discretion, deems offensive. You are responsible for keeping your username and password confidential.

If you are registering your institution, you are responsible for keeping the user list and their log in credentials up to date in the system. If you are registering yourself as a nurse, you agree and authorize NCSBN to use, or provide to third parties, the workforce related information you provided in the registration for purposes of nursing workforce tracking and research.

Notice – Disclaimer of Representations & Warranties

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.

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.
