NCSBN Launches Nursys(R) e-Notify

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Dec 5, 2012) - The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN®), www.ncsbn.org, announces the launch of Nursys® e-Notify, the national nurse licensure notification system that automatically delivers licensure and publicly available discipline data directly to employers as the data is entered into the Nursys® database by U.S. boards of nursing (BONs).

Nursys is the only national database for verification of nurse licensure, discipline and practice privileges for registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPN/VNs). It is comprised of data obtained directly from the licensure systems of U.S. BONs through frequent, secured updates.

The e-Notify system alerts subscribers when changes are made to a nurse's record, including changes to license status, license expirations, pending license renewals, and public disciplinary action/resolutions and alerts. If a nurse's license is about to expire, employers have the option to receive a notification about the expiration date. Employers can also immediately learn about new disciplinary actions issued by a BON for their employed nurse, including receiving access to available public discipline documents. Nursys e-Notify eliminates the need for employers to proactively search for nurse data because they are notified when changes occur. 

Nurse employers are able to subscribe to this service to track licensure and discipline information for little or no charge (cost is dependent on the number of nurses enrolled in the system). The first 100 nurses in a facility registered with Nursys e-Notify are free of charge. After that, each nurse is $1 per year. If an employer has 99 nurses they pay nothing; if they have 200 nurses, the cost per year is $100.

Employers can customize how often they receive notifications and when they want to run reports. Another valuable option is the ability to enter nurse contact information so the employer may send licensure renewal reminders to the nurses directly from the e-Notify system.

Employers can learn more and subscribe to Nursys e-Notify by visiting www.nursys.com. An introductory video can be viewed at https://www.nursys.com/Help/HelpVideoPlayer.aspx?VID=EN.
