Examples of popular licensed databanks are National Nursing Database, License Verification, and Licensed Vocational Nurse database (covers Texas). Web-based search engines provide real-time information of nurses, depending on whether such data has been posted on the net previously. Licensed databanks make it easy for employers to verify the skills and qualifications of potential nurses during recruitment. By confirming licensure information on such databanks, for instance, the employer is assured of competency certification of the nurses to be recruited. The same applies to web-based search engines. d. However, anyone is free to post on the internet any kind of data about an individual.
