Kansas Automated Nurse Notification System (KANN)

Hospitals, educational institutions, nursing homes, staffing agencies, and others rely on the Kansas Board of Nursing (KSBN) for verification of employees’ nursing license status. Previously the only option was verification on a license-by-license basis. But now, KSBN has a new automated service.

The KSBN Kansas Automated Nurse Notification (KANN) system allows employers and educational institutions to be proactive on license verification. Subscribers to the system will be notified when the status of a license changes, including renewals. The notification system has three tier pricing options.

All subscribers will be able to complete the following:

  • Add/delete licensees from their tracking
  • Upgrade subscription
  • Sort Licensees by
    • Profession
    • License Number

Tier One

Annual subscription fee is dependent on number of licensees tracked (1-50 = $150, 51-100 = $250, 101-200 = $300, 201-300 = $350, more than 300 = $400)

  • Receive e-mail notices of any change to license status, including renewal periods
  • Name of licensee
  • License number
  • License status – active or inactive
  • Expiration date of license
  • Original date of licensure
  • Current Disciplinary Actions
