OSBN License Verification Subscription for Employers

This login page is only for the Oregon Board of Nursing’s license verification employer subscription service.

Since Oregon doesn’t issue tangible license cards, employers need to verify a nurse or nursing assistant’s license status online. Available online verification systems include:
  1. The National Council for State Boards of Nursing free Nursys® E-Notify system (https://www.nursys.com/EN/ENDefault.aspx) that includes only RNs, LPNs, and APRNs.
  2. The Oregon Board of Nursing’s online verification system that allows individual license lookups of all Oregon licensees.
  3. The Oregon Board of Nursing’s employer verification subscription service capable of keeping track of several licenses at once. This system makes verifying licenses easier and more efficient for employers than option 2, and it includes CNAs and CMAs. The subscription service provides daily, weekly, or monthly notifications to an employer of the current license status for all of its nurses or nursing assistants. It’s an easy-to-use, low-cost subscription service that automatically notifies an employer when a change occurs to one of their employees’ license statuses, including any current discipline, and when licenses are due to renew.
