Name, Address and Employer of Record
Name of Record:
A licensee of the Board shall establish and keep his/her current legal name on file with the Board at all times.
The name currently on file with the Board shall be considered the name of record.
At the time of a name change, the licensee shall send a signed, written notification of change of name to the Board, accompanied by legal proof of that name change. Legal proof shall be in the form of official records such as a birth certificate, marriage certificate or a court order/decree.
Upon receipt of written notification and legal proof of name change, the Board will change its records to reflect the licensee’s name change.
The name of record shall be the same name used for nursing practice.
Address of Record:
Licensee shall keep his/her current home address on file with the Board at all times.
The home address currently on file with the Board shall be considered the address of record.

The Board will send all correspondence, the Board Newsletter and all official documents, including license renewal notices and Notices of Proposed Disciplinary Action to the licensee’s address of record with the Board.
A Notice of Proposed Disciplinary Action sent to the licensee at the licensee’s address of record by certified mail or registered mail, is sufficient notice even if the licensee fails to or refuses to respond to the postal service “return receipt” and never receives the Notice. Such mailing permits the Board to proceed with disciplinary action in the absence of a request for a hearing.
