Default State Licensure Verification for Doctors & Nurses

This list will be for internet links to the verification websites for physicians and nurses. This thread came about from members requests on where to go to verify if the people caring for the health of the confined loved ones are licensed valid health professionals.

If you have any additional information to add to this thread, please PM so I can update the thread.
