Notification of Changes and Issuances of Licenses, Registrations and Certificates
Published on Oct 11, 2019
Updated on January 29, 2020: The Virginia Board of Nursing is implementing a process to cease mailing hard-copy licenses, registrations and certificates that contain an expiration date. A final hard copy will be issued that contains an issue date but no expiration date. This final copy should be maintained, carried or posted in accordance with relevant applicable laws and regulations. As of February 1, 2020 the Board of Nursing will have completed this process for all newly issued, reinstated or duplicate copies of Massage Therapist and Practical Nurse licenses. Additional licensure categories will be phased in over the next six months to include renewals. State health regulatory boards, employers, insurance providers, citizens seeking verification of current licensure status of any license, registration or certification in the Commonwealth of Virginia may obtain this information via License Lookup which serves as Primary Source Verification.
Individuals may request a replacement or duplicate of a final hard-copy license through an individual online account.
