[FONT=Microsoft Sans Serif]Hi everyone,
I have a quick question. I am currently licensed in New Jersey, and I am endorsing my license to New York, and there is a specific form "form 3: VERIFICATION OF OTHER PROFESSIONAL LICENSURE/CERTIFICATION"
Does this form STILL have to be filled out and sent if I apply for verification Nursys.com?
[FONT=Microsoft Sans Serif]If you are licensed as a nurse in another state, you must provide the New York State Education Department with verification of that licensure. The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) handles verification of licensure for a majority of states through their Nurse System (Nursys). You can check to see if the state(s) where you are licensed as a nurse participates in Nursys by visiting their Web site at www.nursys.com or by calling them at 1-866-819-1700.
[FONT=Microsoft Sans Serif]If the state(s) where you are licensed as a nurse participates in Nursys, you must request verification of your licensure from Nursys, not the state(s). If your state(s) of licensure does (do) not appear on the Nursys list, you must use the Verification of Other Professional Licensure/Certification form (Form 3) to verify your licensure to New York State.
[FONT=Microsoft Sans Serif]Please note, if you hold any other professional licenses in states other than New York, you must also use Form 3 to verify that licensure to New York State.
[FONT=Microsoft Sans Serif]Sorry, I am just confused, I know that New Jersey is eligible for verification at nursys, but am wondering if I still have to send out Form 3 if I am using nursys for verification. Hope this makes sense..thank you!
