Licensure Verification

Employers must verify a nurse's license at the time of employment, make a record of the license expiration date, and verify the nurse has renewed the license by the date of the expiration in the employer's record. A nurse may not work after the license expiration date.

Licensure verification is available on this website in the online services section. If the nurse is an advanced practice registered nurse, the status of the certification also is available. The Minnesota Board of Nursing is the primary source for the information displayed in the online verification except for advanced practice registered nurse certification information.

Request for verification of license

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing will provide verification of your Minnesota license to another state board of nursing. To request verification of your Minnesota license, go to to process an online verification request.
