Arkansas State Board Of Nursing Launches New Online Tool

The Arkansas State Board of Nursing (ASBN) recently launched a new online Licensure application system. The program is the first in the state to integrate the Criminal Background Check process into the online application process. To access the application, visit https://www.ark.org/bon/licensure/index.php.

“We are excited to introduce this valuable and efficient new online service,” said ASBN Director Sue Tedford. “The new automated process is expected to significantly reduce the application approval time. This system will replace the previous manual process for 24 nursing license types.”

Previously, nurses and students completed and submitted paper applications by mail or in person. ASBN staff manually entered and submitted each application through the Criminal Back Ground Check process for license review. With over 3,000 new licenses processed annually, the cost savings in paper and time for both nurses and students and the ASBN will be extraordinary. A key feature of the new application process incorporates an application “Status Check” which allows the board to communicate directly with the applicant regarding the applicant’s application and allows the applicant to view their application as it moves through the phases of processing.
