LPN Education and Certification in Louisiana
The state of Louisiana requires all licensed practical nurses (LPN) to be licensed by the state. To do this, you will need to earn your LPN degree and submit your transcript to state offices.
After you have completed your LPN degree program you will need to take and pass the NCLEX-PN exam. To get a license in this state you also need to be CPR certified.
There is an $85 fee associated with the LPN license application in Louisiana and your license will need to be renewed every year. Before you can renew your license you will need to participate in continuing education courses, which can be taken online. If you work full time you will need to complete five contact hours and if you work part time you will need to complete 10 contact hours of continuing education that is approved by the Louisiana Board of Nursing.
