Instructions and Searching Tips


Search by a Credential type with Credential Number:

Searching by credential type and credential number is the most effective search because it will return only one record.  Select the credential type from the drop down list, then enter the 8 digits number on the credential number field, for example if your license number is RN00004301, you might need to select Register Nurse, then enter 00004301 on credential number field.  If there is a match on credential number, you will see a detail screen that will give you information on that specific individual.

When using the drop-down box for Credential Type, a user can type the first letter of a Credential Type. Users can then scroll through all entries beginning with that letter by entering the same letter again.

Typing an “M” again will display “Massage Practitioner”, or you can click on the down arrow in that box and all the Credential Types beginning with “M” will be displayed.
