B. Look for your “Next Steps” email sent from the Oregon State Board of Nursing (don’t forget to check in your junk mail folder). Once we have received your application and payment, we will send you a Next Steps email with directions for what to do next, including instructions on how to get fingerprinted.
C. The Next Steps email contains a link that will take you to the Oregon State Board of Nursing section of Fieldprint’s website. This link is unique to your application and cannot be used by any other applicant or licensing board.
D. Once at Fieldprint’s website, click “Schedule an Appointment” and you will be prompted to create a secure user account.
E. Enter an email address under “New Users/Sign Up” and click the “Sign Up” button. Follow the instructions for creating a Password and Security Question and then click “Sign Up and Continue.”
F. You will be prompted to enter all demographic information required by the State of Oregon. Once this step is complete, you will be able to search for a fingerprinting location and schedule an appointment at a date and time most convenient for you.
G. Pay the $64.50 background check fee via Fieldprint’s website.
H. At the end of the process, print the Confirmation Page. Take the Confirmation Page with you to your fingerprint appointment, along with two forms of identification.
I. If you have any questions or problems, you may contact Fieldprint’s customer service team at 877-614-4364 or firstname.lastname@example.org
