The Virgin Islands Board of Nurse Licensure serves to protect the public welfare. This Board is alerting the public of the need to view nurses licenses and nurse assistant certificates before allowing nursing services to be provided in your home. It is imperative that the public ask pertinent questions of individuals, before home care is provided, to you and your loved ones. Asking pertinent questions, evaluating the responses and viewing the licenses or certificates will help to assure that you and your loved ones receive safe care.
When you are hiring persons to provide services in your home, it is imperative that you know the qualifications, competencies, and responsibilities of that individual.
