BreEZe License Verification

Click to Verify License

The Board recommends for purposes of verification of licensure, that the registered nurse provide their original RN license card in addition to photo identification. To check the most recent information available regarding an RN license or to view public documents regarding any actions taken, please check the individual's license status through the BreEZe License Verification System.

A link to any available disciplinary documents will be listed below an individual's license status. If the documents are not available for a discipline related matter, you may contact the Board's Enforcement Unit by email at enforcement.brn@dca.ca.gov or by fax at (916) 574-7693.

Employers can now subscribe to receive direct nurse licensure status alerts and reports through NCSBN’s Nursys e-Notify system. Click for more information.

The California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) has an intradepartmental contract with the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) to provide the license lookup on the BreEZe website and the actual operation thereof. The BreEZe license lookup website is the property of DCA and system security concerns are ultimately their responsibility. The information that the BRN provides to DCA is a true and accurate reflection of our license records that are derived from primary source documents. We are informed that while the Department believes the information to be reliable, human or mechanical error remains a possibility, as does delay in the posting or updating of information. Accordingly, DCA's BreEZe license lookup reflects the BRN's primary source information. The license lookup information is updated daily; therefore the information is current as to the date indicated on the site.

Your organization is responsible for any decision it may make based on our website information. However, it is our intent to provide accurate registered nurse license information and to allow users the ability to verify licenses.
