The Kansas State Board of Nursing (KSBN) is pleased to announce the launch of their online Kansas Nursing License Portal. The portal is designed to give applicants the ability to apply and pay for their license(s) from the convenience of their home—24 hours a day, seven days a week. The service is available for all professions, except mental health technicians. "The goal of the Kansas State Board of Nursing is to provide applicants a more efficient and convenient way to apply for their license. KSBN is very proud to offer this service," said Mary Blubaugh. The Online Kansas Nursing License Portal ties into KSBN's current licensing system. It allows the user to apply for a Kansas nursing license, verify information, and manage changes to their license electronically. Through its partnership with the Information Network of Kansas, Inc., KSBN's online Kansas Nursing License Portal also allows applicants to securely pay for online services via electronic check or credit card. To apply for nursing licensure you must have access to the Internet and a checking account or credit card. Applicants who apply online do not have to mail in the license application.
