Board of Nursing

The Colorado State Board of Nursing (Board) is pleased to report that 75 percent of nurses issued a multistate license between July 21, 2017, and January 18, 2018, complied with Senate Bill 18-27’s new background check requirement to maintain eligibility for licensure in the Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC).

The Board appreciates the Colorado Bureau of Investigation’s efforts to efficiently process these background checks. The Board also recognizes the swift action taken by the 1,660 nurses who facilitated these background checks, or in some cases, contacted the Board about potential discrepancies regarding their status.

Finally, the Board appreciates all of the employers, associations, schools and other healthcare organizations who joined the Board’s outreach and education efforts and delivered important information to those nurses who fell within the licensing date “gap.”
