Our Policy has recently changed and it is no longer required that your fingerprints must be rolled on the blue and white card FD-258, sent to you by the Board of Nursing.  Although the FD-258 is the preferred fingerprint card by local sheriff and police departments, the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) will accept fingerprint cards that:

Contain the same information as the FD-258.

Has the same layout and block pattern as the FD-258

Is on 8 X 8 card stock paper.

If you have not received a fingerprint card from the Board of Nursing please check with any local facility who offers fingerprinting services, such as local police agencies and have them complete your fingerprints on their card.

Please complete all blanks at the top of the fingerprint card except: employer, reason for fingerprinting, OCA #., FBI #., Armed Forces #., and miscellaneous #, and ORIG.

Please note:  Fingerprint clearance cards are NOT acceptable.  If live scan is available, it is acceptable with the print card printed out.

Please remember to submit your fingerprint card as soon as possible to expedite the process.  A permanent license will not be issued until fingerprint results are received.  Results can take up to 6-8 weeks to receive.
