New Jersey residents (who happen to own Apple products) can now check the licensing status of 600,000 regulated professionals in the state with the help of a new app.
The Division of Consumer Affairs has launched its free New Jersey Professional License for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Consumers can enter the name of a professional or a business and select the license/registration type from a list, according to the Gloucester County Times’ description of the app. New Jerseyans can kill time in a hospital waiting room by checking to see if the nurses on duty are in good standing, for example.
The app is a partnership between the State of New Jersey and the New Jersey Information Division of NICUSA, which helps the state’s agencies get their information to web platforms, and is based on a list of 46 licensing boards and committees throughout the Garden State.
