Q: Is The Kansas State Board of Nursing Page contained in the accessKansas website at www.accesskansas.org/ksbn-verifications/ the official verification website of the Kansas State Board of Nursing?

A: Yes, The Kansas State Board of Nursing Page contained in the accessKansas website at www.accesskansas.org/ksbn-verifications/ is the official verification website of the Kansas State Board of Nursing. The accessKansas website receives the Kansas State Board of Nursing information directly from the Kansas State Board of Nursing database and is protected from alteration by unauthorized individuals by using encryption technology. The Kansas State Board of Nursing Page is considered a primary source for Kansas State Board of Nursing data—it is the same information the Kansas State Board of Nursing provides through other means and is true and complete to the best of our knowledge.

Q: I can't seem to get a result and I am entering in the correct license number?

A: When the information is exported to INK.org, the license number is broken into 3 separate fields. The License Verification Database only searches for the middle license numbers.  Likewise the first 0 (zero) in the second set of numbers was dropped as part of a Licensee's License Number.   In short when searching in the License Verification Database by license number, only search the middle five numbers as represented by X's in the example.  Example: 14-0XXXXX-082.

Q: I am getting a result but there are 3 different people with the same result on the same page??

A: As stated above due to the newly implemented system KSBN License numbers are broken up into 3 fields. The License Verification Database only searches for the middle license numbers.  This is really not 3 different people with the same license number.  They only have the same middle license numbers the License Method is different.  See Example of Search Result.

Q: I see there is a letter in the Alert Code List when I do a search, but I don't know what it means?  Example of Search Result.

A: The Alert Codes System is a way to specify a status or action on a License.  View the Alert Code meanings.

Q: What do those first two letters of the License Number mean?

A: License numbers are broken down into 3 sections, the License Prefix specifies the Profession, the Middle numbers are a randomly generated identifier and the License Suffix specifies the month and odd or even year of renewal.  View the License Prefix Professions Meanings.
