License Verification



The Alabama Board of Nursing obtains primary source verification of education prior to issuance of licenses.  For advanced practice nurses, primary source verification of certification occurs prior to issuance of approval.


License Lookup on the Board's web site is not considered primary source verification.  An update is run only once a day.  However, subscribers to the group online license verification system can count on the system for primary source verification.  For more information about the group online license verification system for employers of nurses, click here.

If requesting a license verification, please allow 3 to 5 days for your verification to be PROCESSED and MAILED.

NOTE: The online applications will not currently work with Firefox.  Please use Internet Explorer
