Several Minnesota statutes establish the data privacy status of administrative and Board actions pertaining to a nurse's license.
The Board determined that it is in the public interest to publicize not only actions taken against a nurse's license but also actions taken to improve the status of a nurse's license. A patient, patient's representative, or employer needs a simple way to make a determination about the appropriate utilization of any nurse.
Obtaining a Copy of a Public Document
A copy of the order or agreement describing the action is available by sending a written request to:
Minnesota Board of Nursing
Nursing Practice Section
1210 Northland Drive, Suite 120
Mendota Heights, MN 55120
