Do I need to submit fingerprints with my application?
According to A.R.S. § 32-1606(B) (16), each applicant for initial licensure or certification is required to submit a full set of fingerprints. A fingerprint card will be mailed to you after we receive your application. It is important for you to use the specific fingerprint card we send you because Arizona State Board of Nursing information is printed on the card. It can take 3 to 4 weeks to receive fingerprint results. You will not be certified until results are received. A copy of a fingerprint clearance card cannot be substituted for this requirement.
