Louisiana State Board of Practical Nurse Examiners

To renew your license, you must create an account through the Nurse Portal.  After you have created your account, you will return to the Nurse Portal by signing in using your username and password.  Once you have accessed your account, proceed to the section entitled “Your Licenses with Louisiana-PN”.  You will choose this link to begin your renewal.

The renewal link will only appear during the active renewal period which is November 1st through January 31st.  ONLY current and active LPNs, that have not yet renewed their license, will be able to access the renewal link. After February 1st, your license will become delinquent. In order to renew your license after January 31st, you must access the link for inactive licenses.

NOTE: It is best to access your Nurse Portal account using a Windows desktop PC or laptop in Chrome or Internet Explorer 11+.  Mobile devices are not supported (for example, phones, iPads, etc).
