HOW DO I GET MY NEVADA

NURSING LICENSE?

If a travel nurse wants to obtain their Nevada nursing license, they must follow these steps:

  • Visit the Nevada State Board of Nursing’s Nursing Portal here. Complete the application and pay the appropriate fees as listed in the instructions. You will need to submit a copy of evidence of graduation from your nursing education program that indicates your nursing degree and graduation date.
  • Verification from your original state of licensure is required. If your home state participates in the NURSYS system, you can complete the request on the NURSYS site, designating Nevada as the receipt of verification. If your state does not participate in NURSYS, you must contact its board of nursing for further instructions. You will need to send them the Verification of License form found here. They will then complete the form and submit it to the Nevada State Board of Nursing at 4220 S. Maryland Pkwy, Suite 300, Las Vegas, NV 80119-7524

After submitting the above, you will be qualified for a temporary license; however, you will need to complete the background check before your temporary license expires to receive a permanent license.

  • A fingerprint card and background check are required to get your permanent license and continue working after your temporary license expires. Out-of-state applicants can use any law enforcement agency’s fingerprint card, or a private fingerprinting service, provided it is completed on the standard FD-258 card. Fingerprints can also be submitted through Live Scan; however, they must be captured in Nevada.
