Spread the Word Nevada offers convenient, state-of-the-art Live-Scan fingerprinting at our Henderson office. This ink-free process is a quick and easy way to complete the necessary background checks for many state and federal agencies. Because your prints are sent directly to the requesting agency, results of your background check can be expected in as little as a few days (compared to months for traditional ink fingerprinting).

We are approved by the Department of Public Safety for the State of Nevada to serve many Nevada State Boards including:

  • Department of Education
  • Board of Nursing
  • Contractor’s Board
  • Physical Therapy Examiners’ Board

Know Before You Go

  • Please bring all paperwork provided to you by the agency requesting your fingerprints.
  • Moisturize your hands with lotion at least twice daily for several days before your prints are taken. This helps repair your skin’s natural ridges, leading to a better print. Please do not put lotion on immediately before your prints are taken.
  • Avoid lifting weights a few days before your appointment, as it is hard on your fingertips and may cause scratches/scrapes on your fingers that wear down the ridges on your prints.

For questions about fingerprinting, to schedule an appointment, or to request mobile service, please call 702-564-7809 or email johanna@spreadthewordnevada.org
