Protecting the Public, Promoting Progress

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.​​

SCAM ALERT: Neither the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services nor regulating or licensing boards (e.g. State Board of Nursing) will contact credential holders requesting payment to clear or restore licenses. You will also not receive emails from DSPS or regulatory boards asking you to verify your account by clicking on a link​ or by providing your email and password. If you receive a call, email, fax, letter, text, or other communication indicating that there are problems with your license/credential that can be resolved with immediate payment or by clicking a link or providing your email and/or password, this could be a scam. Do not give out your personal, confidential information to someone claiming to be from a government agency or board. This document ​has more information about what to do if you think someone is trying to scam you.
