Common Nursys e-Notify Frequently Asked Questions:

Is Nursys e-Notify primary source information?

The information you will receive from Nursys e-Notify is pulled directly from Nursys, the only national database for licensure, discipline/final orders and practice privileges for Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses. Nursys data is compiled from information directly inputted from boards of nursing and is primary source equivalent.

How do I enroll a nurse? What information do I need?

Enrolling your nurses is easy. First, you need his/her license number, license type and the state(s) that issued the license. This information is used to locate the nurse directly from Nursys. Then, you add other information to their profile, including nursing specialty, email and address. For employment verification purposes, you will be required to enter the last four digits of the nurse's social security number and date of birth. You can also add the nurse's cell phone number if you choose to have the system send automatic license expiration reminders on your behalf.

Can I upload several nurses into the system at once?

Yes, you can. With bulk upload, you can add multiple nurses into Nursys e-Notify by using a file. Specifications and sample files are available to help make this process seamless.
