Nurse Corps LRP Employment Verification FAQs

What is Employment Verification?

Employment Verification is the process utilized by the Nurse Corps LRP to obtain information from Critical Shortage Facilities (for Registered Nurses) or accredited schools of nursing (for Nurse Faculty) to determine if an applicant or current participant's employment, service, and practice requirements meet the guidelines of the program.

Who completes the Employment Verification?

Your site Point of Contact (POC) completes the employment verification online form through the BHW Program Portal ('Portal') for Site Administrators. They will receive a notification via email that a new activity awaits their attention on the Portal.

What is the Employment Verification process?

To send your Employment Verification to the site POC(s), select 'Initiate' next to the site name. A message will be sent to your site's POC(s) to log into the Program Portal for Site Administrators and complete the online form. You will receive an email notification once the Employment Verification status is 'complete' which will enable you to then successfully submit your Nurse Corps LRP online application. If your Employment Verification status is 'returned unverified' you may need to follow up with your site POC(s), as they have indicated that you are not currently employed by that site. It is your responsibility to ensure the Employment Verification is completed by a site POC by the application deadline.

My site has a POC, but they are not familiar with my employment, can I add another person as a site POC?

Existing site POCs can log into their account on the Portal and add others to the list of Points of Contact for that site. Please instruct the existing site POC to log into the Program Portal for Site Administrators to add the new Point of Contact.

What if my site does not have a site POC or the site POC no longer works at my site?

If your site does not have a POC, you have the opportunity to enter a site POC email address in the “other POC” field that will enable that individual to create an account on the Program Portal for Site Administrators and complete your Employment Verification. Once the Employment Verification has been initiated, a notification will be sent to the email address with instructions to set up a Program Portal account for your site to access the online employment verification.

Am I able to cancel the Employment Verification once it has been initiated?

Yes, select ‘cancel’ next to the site name on the Employment Verification page. The employment verification will be cancelled and the site POC(s) will be notified through their Portal accounts.

How can I remove a site from the Employment Verification page?

To remove the site from the Employment Verification page of the Nurse Corps LRP online application you must navigate back to the Employment section of the application and delete the site.

What if my site does not complete the Employment Verification and the application cycle closes?

You will not be able to submit your Nurse Corps LRP online application if your Employment Verification is not complete. As the applicant, it is your responsibility to ensure your site's timely completion of the Employment Verification. The site POC will receive reminders every 72 hours to complete your Employment Verification; however, it is your responsibility to ensure the Employment Verification is completed with enough time for you to then submit your application by the application close date of January 13, 2022 at 7:30 PM EST.

How do I know if my site has a POC and/or if the POC has an active Portal account?

To determine if your site has a POC, select the site name on the Employment Verification page of the online application to see the Point of Contact(s) name, email, phone number, and if they have a registered Portal account. If no POC exists, enter an email address in the 'other POC' field and an email will be sent to instruct them to create a Portal account to complete the Employment Verification. If a POC exists, but they have not set up their Portal account, it is your responsibility to encourage the POC to create the account and complete your Employment Verification on the Program Portal for Site Administrators.

Will I be able to see the information my site enters on my Employment Verification?

Upon submission of your Nurse Corps LRP online application, you will be able to view your application, which will include the Employment Verification as submitted by your site POC.

Do I need a RN license to participate in the Nurse Corps LRP-NF?

The Nurse Corps LRP for Nurse Faculty (Nurse Corps LRP-NF) is aware that not all schools of nursing require nurse faculty to maintain a current, full, permanent unencumbered, unrestricted license. However, the Nurse Corps LRP-NF requires participants to maintain an RN license while participating in the program. If your school of nursing does not require you to maintain an RN license, please be advised that you must do so to meet the Nurse Corps LRP-NF eligibility requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure that the Point of Contact that completes the Employment Verification has your most recent licensure information.
