Moved? Changed your Name? Manage your Nursing License/Certificate Online
As a nurse licensed to practice in Ohio, it is your responsibility to notify the Nursing Board of any changes to your address or your name.
Beginning July 1, 2016, all name and address changes must be performed on-line by accessing the Nursing Board’s new eLicense 3.0 licensure system. (Simply sending an email or letter to the Board with your new address will NOT be sufficient to update your address.)
Listed below are the steps to register as a new user on the Nursing Board’s eLicense 3.0 licensure system. This information was obtained on the Nursing Board’s website under the section “Forms and Applications.”
- You will be required to register as a new user and create an account profile the first time you attempt to access your license or certificate information in the new State licensure system. Be sure to click the button “I have a License” when creating your new user account. Click Here for Instructions for Retrieving your Security Code. ** This option will only work if you still have access to the email account currently on file for you at the Board.
- We recommend that you download and review these registration instructions prior to starting the process. Click Here for Instructions on Creating a New Account / Registration. Click Here to Create a New User Account and Manage your License or Certificate Information
Failure to notify the Nursing Board of a change in name and/or address could cause an issue for a potential employer performing on-line licensure verification. By not updating your name and/or address, it could hinder the Nursing Board’s ability to provide you with written notification in a timely fashion.
