Fingerprint Ink Card-Scanning or Hard Card Scanning Services should be used by applicants needing Level 2 Background Checks who don't live near one of our collection sites. Licensure for Florida Real Estate, Nursing, or Doctors and many other ORIs can be processed.

Florida regulation mandates out-of-state applicants must submit electronic fingerprints with the appropriate State of Florida ORI numbers provided by the State agency requesting the background check. Applicants can utilize standard FBI fingerprint cards (FD-258) or FBI FD-258 form.
Note: All data fields highlighted in yellow must be written/printed legibly and completely filled-in on the fingerprint card or form to expedite the fingerprint card scan service.

Note: Department of Health (e.g. Board of Nursing, Board of Medicine) applicants by-mail can get a background check for licensing or endorsement purposes ONLY. To work in the state of Florida, a photo must be taken as part of the background check process. This allows the applicant to show up in the Clearinghouse a database where background checks can be shared solely for Florida state agencies. This process cannot be done by mail, and it is described on the Department of Health's website at: http://www.flhealthsource.gov/out-of-state-providers under hard scanning section. It is important to check the Department of Health's requirements for your background check process.
