Nurses have received calls from persons claiming to be from the Board. Scammers use spoofed telephone numbers appearing to originate from the SDBON office. The scammer may be hostile and tell you that a specific action is needed to prevent your nursing license from becoming suspended, such as to send money. Be wary of these calls!
Do not provide personal information to anyone you do not know or trust.
If you receive a suspicious call, call the Board office directly, 605-362-2760, or
Report it to the Attorney General's Division of Consumer Protection: 1-800-300-1986
Nurses have received emails from companies/businesses that advertise that their course or educational offering is approved by the Board for continuing education units (CEU) often in all caps as a FLASH SALE. Be advised, the SDBON does not approve CEUs. Contact the Consumer Protection office:
