I've submitted my application to the Board, now what?

1) Submit the proof of nurse aide registration form (enclosed) to your current state of certification including documentation/proof of passing test. Some states charge a fee for completion of this form. Check with the state in which you are registered/certified to find out the fee you must pay BEFORE sending the proof of registration form to your current state of certification. You must be active and in good standing to obtain endorsement in Arizona. The state will return the proof of registration form directly to the Arizona State Board of Nursing.

2) Complete a fingerprint card. A fingerprint card will be mailed to you after we receive your application if you have not included one with your application. If the results of your fingerprint check show a positive criminal history, an investigation may be started and you will not be certified until the investigation is done. This may take 4 to 6 months.
