​SCAM ALERT: Neither the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services nor regulating or licensing boards (e.g. State Board of Nursing) will contact licensees by phone or fax requesting payment to clear or restore licenses. If you receive a call, email, fax or letter indicating that someone has stolen your license or that there are problems with your license that can be resolved with immediate payment, this could be a scam. Do not give out your personal, confidential information to someone claiming to be from a government agency or board.​

The mission of the Department​ of Safety and Professional Services is to promote economic growth and stability while protecting the citizens of Wisconsin as designated by statute.​​​​​
