Licensure by Endorsement

Process

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. For more information on completing the background check requirement, click here.

Temporary License

  1. If you wish to be issued a provisional license, please indicate this within the online application.
  2. Temporary permits are valid for 90 days.
  3. Once all items have been received by the BON except the background check and/or verification of licensure, you may be issued a provisional license.
