How to Search the Public Directory
You may search the directory using Last Name or First Name (or both) to view the current status and relevant licensure dates. Click the View button for additional information about the individual.
If the nurse you are searching for does not appear in the results:
- try a simpler search such as using only the first or last name
- ensure you have the CORRECT, EXACT spelling of the name. The College publishes names of registrants exactly as they appear on their government issued photo ID. Employers are reminded to compare the name as published here with their government issued photo ID.
If the search does not provide any results, the individual is not currently licensed with the College, however they may have been licensed in previous years.
If there is a discrepancy, the EXACT name is absent, please contact the Registration Department.
