All AOG Portal users, including Program Administrators, must:

  • Be designated by the Program Administrator on the designation form for each program of nursing for which they will be granted access; and
  • Submit a completed Attestation Statement for each program of nursing for which they will be granted access.​

EDvera










KBN is responsible for approving and regulating pre- and post-licensure nursing education programs, dialysis technician training programs, sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) training programs, and licensed certified professional midwife (LCPM) training programs training programs in the state of Kentucky. This oversight involves a substantial amount of documentation, reporting, and time spent by the programs’ faculty and staff as well as by Board staff.

To streamline and simplify these processes, KBN has leveraged EDvera, a workflow automation and document management platform that enables end-to-end management of complex application processing, audits, and reporting.

Staff from Kentucky regulated educational institutions will now log into the EDvera website (kbn.edvera.com) to submit all documentation to the Board. The administrator for each educational institution will be granted access to EDvera when the requirements for their appointment as administrator have been verified by Board staff. Additional users for any educational institution may be requested by the administrator by emailing the appropriate Board staff member as indicated on the program profile in EDvera.

Institutions desiring to open a new nursing program must email KBN.Education@ky.gov stating the intent to open a program and requesting access to EDvera to submit the required documentation. Institutions desiring to open a new CE Providership, SANE Training Program, DT Training Program, or LCPM Training Program must email KBN.Practice@ky.gov stating the intent to open a program and requesting access to EDvera to submit the required documentation. Any documentation submitted via mail or email will have to be resubmitted in EDvera once access has been granted.
