SECTION 182
Cards to be furnished nurses; registry records
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 11
§ 182. Cards to be furnished nurses; registry records. 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.
