Important Changes to the Ohio Board of Nursing – First Source Screening Program

August 19, 2021Articles

If you are being monitored by the Ohio Board of Nursing and required to submit random screens through First Source, changes have been made to the program that will affect every participant. You will no longer be able to use the app or call the toll-free number to check whether you have been selected to test.

Effective Sept. 1, 2021, there will be changes to First Source screening procedures. Updated information will be posted on the Board’s website and First Source will send a communication to participants.

The check-in portal and process will change. All participants will have access and be required to use the new FSSolutions portal.

Enrollment in the new system was required by Aug. 13, 2021. If you have not done so, contact the FSSolutions team at 833-476-1173 during business hours or e-mail at[email protected].

It is important to note this new system requires you to log in through the website ( for your check-in message, rather than calling the toll-free number or using the mobile app.

If you have questions about the changes to the screening program, immediately contact your compliance agent (monitor) at the Nursing Board.

As always, if you have questions about the Ohio Board of Nursing or the disciplinary monitoring program, you may contact attorneys Beth Collis or Todd Collis at the law firm of Dinsmore and Shohl, LLP at [email protected] or [email protected].
