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 by clicking on the Verify an RN or LPN License button on the home page of the website. If the nurse is an advanced practice registered nurse, verification is available on this website by clicking on the Verify and APRN License button on the home page of the website. The Minnesota Board of Nursing is the primary source for the information displayed in the online verification.
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 www.nursys.com to process an online verification request.
