Section 182 Cards to be furnished nurses; registry records

General Business (GBS)

A nurses' registry shall send out to practice nursing only persons duly licensed pursuant to article one hundred thirty-nine of the education law as a registered professional nurse or licensed practical nurse. Every nurses' registry, before sending a person out to practice nursing, shall investigate such person's educational qualifications and verify such person's licensure and current registration. At least two current written references shall be required of such person. The record of such investigation and verification shall be kept on file in the registry.

  Every nurses' registry that sends out any such person shall at such time give to such person and send to the employer of such person a card stating (1) such person's name, address and salary, (2) whether such person is a registered professional nurse or licensed practical nurse, (3) the number of the current registration certificate issued to such person by the education department, and (4) a statement that the record of such person's educational qualifications and experience in the practice of nursing is on file in such registry and that a copy thereof will be sent to such employer on request. A copy of such card shall be kept on file in the registry.

  The record of investigation and verification and the card-copy required by this section to be kept on file shall be open to inspection by any duly authorized agent of the university of the state of New York, and every nurses' registry shall furnish a complete list of its registrants on request of such agent.
