License Information System

Licensure Unit provides Web site access to licensure information for credentialed persons, health care facilities and services and child care programs. The information on the Web site allows for verification of the status of a Nebraska issued credential (license, certification, or registration); and the licensure information is:
  • A true and correct copy of the State of Nebraska licensure database;
  • Updated nightly to reflect any changes;
  • Accessible as "read only"; and
  • Protected by a secure firewall.


Starting January 1, 2011, the Licensure Unit will add inspection and disciplinary action information to our lookup site for nursing home and assisted-living facility records as the inspection or action is taken.  When you search for a nursing home or assisted-living facility at, if an inspection or disciplinary action has been taken since January 1, 2011, the following documents will be available in the Actions Taken section of the facility record:  Statement of Deficiencies and Plan of Correction, Licensure Disciplinary Actions, and Federal Remedial Actions. 

You may search for a person or facility/service with a full name or a partial names followed by an asterisk “*” character. For example, searching for the first name Jo* and last name Smith would match anyone with a first name that starts with Jo (John, Joseph, Joan) and a last name of Smith.  If you are searching for a facility/service and enter *Elizabeth*, any facility whose name includes "Elizabeth" will appear, such as "Elizabeth Barrett Browning Medical Center".

If your search is too broad, you will be prompted to enter more specific information. Not all elements are required to perform a search.

Federal Controlled Substances (DEA) Registrant Information can be accessed by credentialing organizations, hospitals, and pharmacies after obtaining a User ID and Password. To obtain a User ID and Password contact the Licensure Unit by e-mail at

In addition to General License Information this version of the data contains Federal Controlled Substances Registration numbers and expiration dates for health care providers that hold a Nebraska license and have submitted proof of holding such Federal Registration. Federal controlled substances (DEA) registrant information is validated on licenses at the time of issuance and updated on a quarterly basis.
