About Advance Directive Registry

The Secretary of State is responsible for electronically storing and making available filed documents to the registrant and/or authorized entities by request in conjunction with the registrant’s medical care.

Any person may file an advance directive (NRS 449.965) in the form of a:

  • Living Will 
  • Declaration governing the withholding or withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment
  • Durable power of attorney for health care decisions
  • Do-not-resuscitate order (DNR)
  • Provider Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST)

Registration is free. Instructions, forms and resources needed to register are available at NevadaLockbox.nv.gov or on the Secretary of State website NVSOS.gov.

Secure & Confidential
Secure access to the Lockbox is granted to the registrant through an assigned registration number. It is at the discretion of the registrant to share this information with others.
