Initial survey requirements

3.1 What is an initial licensure survey and what are they looking for?

The surveyors conducting the initial announced licensure survey will be reviewing your policies and procedures and readiness to operate a nurse registry. If the applicant is not available when an inspection is attempted, a Notice of Intent to Deny the application will be sent to the applicant.

You are required to have policies and procedures in place. We recommend that you review "How to Prepare for a Nurse Registry Survey" at the web page. The policies and procedures that are required are included in the "How to Prepare for a Nurse Registry Survey". Also review the State Regulation Set used by Surveyors.
