The AZBN now offers electronic fingerprinting services for applicants who are physically in Arizona. At this time there are no location partners outside of Arizona.

DO NOT submit electronic fingerprints if you receive a fingerprint rejection.

To submit your fingerprints electronically, please complete your license application online using the Nurse Portal. Once you have completed the online application you will receive instructions on how to complete your electronic fingerprints.

Guidelines for Required FBI Notifications of Applicant Privacy Rights

Agencies which submit fingerprints to receive FBI criminal history records are required to make certain
notifications to applicants who are fingerprinted for noncriminal justice purposes. All applicants must be
advised of this and in writing PRIOR to submitting the fingerprint card to the FBI (via DPS), not just those who
dispute an employment and/or a license denial.
