Board of Registered Nursing Transitions to New Licensure Verification System

For CNOs, human resources executives

Effective March 10, registered nursing license verification requests previously completed by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) using the California Department of Consumer Affairs BreEZe Online Services will transition to a new online service provider — Nursys.   

The Nursys database is the repository of the license and disciplinary data of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN), which the BRN has designated as its primary source equivalent database. NCSBN posts the information in Nursys when, and as, submitted by the BRN.  

As the BRN transitions to Nursys, there will be a short period of time that verification requests can continue to be made through the DCA BreEZe Online Services. However, it is recommended that this option is not used after March 10, as the BRN anticipates BreEZe will be removed in April 2022.
