To look up a license, enter a search term (such as “Jane Smith”) into the text box and click on Search. The search results will display all records matching your search query. If there are multiple people with the same name, you may need to narrow your search by entering additional information (such as a county or license number) in order to obtain the correct record.
You can also use this tool to register yourself with NPLEx so that you can continue your education requirements while working toward becoming licensed!

3 You may search for a licensee by entering all or part of the person’s name or license number, or by selecting a city or county from the drop-down list.
In order to search for a licensee, you may enter all or part of their name or license number, or select a city or county from the drop-down list.
Below are some specific examples of how to perform a search:
- Search by Name – Entering just part of a person’s name will bring up results containing that exact same combination. For example: If you are looking for someone named “John Smith,” entering “Smith” will bring up his record (as well as anyone else with that last name). If there is more than one John Smith listed in our database, you can choose which one appears on your screen by clicking on their record.
- Search by License Number – Entering the entire license number will return only records matching this number exactly; partial numbers can not be entered in this field (for example: if someone has an RN license numbered 23456789A and another RN license numbered 9876543210D , searching 23456789A will not show both licenses).
4 The results will be ordered by city and then alphabetically by last name.
When you run the search, the results will be ordered by city and then alphabetically by last name. If multiple people live in the same city, the list will include everyone with a Nebraska nursing license whose mailing address matches yours. If there are still more than 100 results, you can view them as a paginated list or use our [Advanced Search](https://www.nursingboardnebraska.org/search-nurse-licensee-information).
