To get a Maryland Nursing License, a travel nurse needs to follow these steps:

  • Get fingerprinted for the Maryland Board of Nursing. Out-of-state applicants must use paper cards.
  • Request a fingerprint packet from nets@maryland.gov. In the email, mention your full name and mailing address.
  • Once you receive the cards, have your prints rolled/inked on the cards.
  • Get a check or money order made out to the “CJIS Central Repository.” Fee requirements can be found here.
  • Mail the fingerprint card and fee to
  • CJIS Central Repository P.O. Box 32708 Pikesville, Maryland 21282-2708. Or you can overnight the materials to 6776 Reisterstown Road, Suite 102, Baltimore, Maryland 21215.
  • Complete the online application. You’ll need:
    • A digital passport style photograph.
    • The 12-digit number from under the barcode on the purple fingerprint card or the tracking number on the Livescan receipt
    • A Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card ($100 payment for the permanent license and $40 if you need a temporary license)
