License Verification



The Alabama Board of Nursing obtains primary source verification of education prior to issuance of licenses.  For advanced practice nurses, primary source verification of certification occurs prior to issuance of approval.


License Lookup on the Board's web site is considered primary source verification.  However, you can subscribe to the group online license verification system for healthcare agencies, offices, and groups  and receive electronic notification any time there is a change in any employee’s license status. For more information about the group online license verification system for employers of nurses, click here.

If requesting a license verification, please allow 3 to 5 days for your verification to be PROCESSED and MAILED.
