The Nursing Act requires that we publish specific information on our website about all the LPNs, RNs and NPs registered and/or licensed in Nova Scotia. To make this information easy to locate we have developed this “Search for a Nurse” tool. By using this tool you can confirm that a person who is providing nursing services in Nova Scotia is authorized to do so.

For a period of time as we continue our transition to one nursing regulator there will be some registration numbers for different licensing categories of nurses that will overlap. Please note, all three elements (name, licensing category and registration number), determines an individual’s unique status.

Please note: if you are performing multiple searches, you are limited to six searches per minute. Once you exceed this limit, you may receive an error notice. You will be able to resume your search once this minute has passed.
