Licensure by Endorsement


Permanent License

  1. Submit an application online and pay the fee.
  2. Request verification of licensure via Nursys from your original state of licensure and the state where you are currently employed. If these states do not participate in Nursys, you will need to contact that state’s BON and request verification be sent to the Vermont BON.
  3. Provide a background check with fingerprints. You will need to have a release form signed and notarized before submitting it to the BON. Once received, the BON will send fingerprinting instructions to you via email. Fingerprints can be completed in Vermont or out of state.
