Are you in Arizona and interested in submitting your fingerprints electronically? If so, please read below to learn more about the services.
AZBN now offers electronic fingerprinting services for applicants who are physically in Arizona. At this time there are no location partners outside of Arizona.
- To submit your fingerprints electronically, you must first complete and submit your license application online from your Nurse Portal account.
- Once you have submitted the online application you will receive a message containing instructions on how to complete your electronic fingerprints.
Note: Electronic fingerprints can only be completed after an application has been received by the Board and payment received.
Registering for Electronic fingerprints:
- Visit the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) website to register.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are available.
- Use the Fingerprint Code you received in the Nurse Portal Message Center.
- After you create an account and provide additional information, you will be directed to a My Order page. On that page, you must select ‘SUBMIT AND PAY.’ DO NOT select the option to ‘Request Employer/Agency Pay’ as doing so will delay the processing of your application.
If you select the option to request the agency to pay, we will decline that request and you will be redirected to self-pay. You must pay for your own electronic fingerprinting fee through DPS.
FBI Privacy Act Statement
As an applicant who is the subject of a national fingerprint-based criminal history record check for a noncriminal justice purpose (such as an application for employment or a license, an immigration or naturalization matter, security clearance, or adoption), you have certain rights which are discussed below. All notices must be provided to you in writing. 1 These obligations are pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, Title 5, United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 552a, and Title 28 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), 50.12, among other authorities.
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.
