Fingerprinting Fee Increase

As per the Nevada Division of Public and Behaviorial Health/Nevada Child Care Licensing, the fee for background fingerprinting increased from $36.75 to $40.25 on July 1, 2019. 

This means that anyone applying to work as an employee or independent contractor at a licensed health facility, child care facility or other position that requires a background check under Nevada law will be required to pay $40.25 to have their background checked prior to employment. The change is due to an increase in the state portion of the fee.

Questions should be directed to the Department of Public Safety.
