  • Name

  • License issuance date

  • License status

  • License expiration date

  • Disciplinary action information

Please note that the above-listed public information is also available, free of charge, through the Division of Professional Licensure’s public “Check a License” database.

The Board does not complete licensing verification forms from licensing authorities in other states or jurisdictions, and provides only the above-listed public information to requestors.
