OSBN Verification Subscription Service Terms & Conditions

Please read and certify that you have read these Terms & Conditions, including the Disclaimer of Representations & Warranties, for permission to use the OSBN Verification Subscription service. If you are an employer of nursing assistants and are using the service for an employment purpose, then you must also certify your compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act ("FCRA") below. Here are links to the Terms of Use for Oregon state websites.

The Oregon State Board of Nursing database is the repository of the license and disciplinary data of all Oregon nurses and nursing assistants. OSBN grants to you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, and non-transferable license to access the database to verify certification status and disciplinary history of CNAs for purposes of employment. This permission to access is limited and does not permit, or include the right to, any reproduction, reuse, sale or other commercial or derivative use of any OSBN data. Except for the foregoing sentence, you are prohibited from downloading or copying any data for any third party's use or from accessing the OSBN 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 the OSBN, in its sole discretion, deems offensive. You are responsible for keeping your username and password confidential.

For Institution Accounts Only:

If you are registering your institution, then you are responsible for keeping the user list and their log in credentials up to date in the system. If you are registering your institution, then you are responsible for keeping an accurate and current list of CNAs with whom the institution has current affiliations, which includes removing nurses from your institutions affiliated list promptly after ceasing the affiliation.
