Before using our online system to verify licensure status, please read the following:
Verification of lpn licensure
Verification obtained through our
online system does not ensure that the person presenting him/her self
is, in fact, the rightful owner of the license. You should
always visually inspect both the lpn license and (at least on
initial hire) the lpns drivers license (or some other state issued
photo I.D.) to compare signatures and photos against the live
signature and physical likeness of the lpn presenting him/her self to
you. You should have the lpns license number before entering
the verification site, as it may be needed to narrow down the search
results and to ensure you are verifying the correct lpn.
Despite our best efforts to inform
employers of disciplinary actions taken by the board, changes in licensure
status, as a result of disciplinary action, can happen at any time,
including after an online verification has been obtained.
Verification of temporary work permits issued to endorsement applicants
Temporary work permits are not
included in the online verification system at this time. To
verify a permit, you must submit a written request on letterhead
providing the applicant's name and permit number, along with a $5.00
fee per applicant, payable by company check or money order, to:
Louisiana State Board of Practical Nurse Examiners (LSBPNE) 131 Airline Drive, Suite 301 Metairie, LA 70001
Online verification system
The fee is $5.00 per verification.
Fees are *** NON REFUNDABLE *** Payment is

Ideally, the data for our online
verification system will be uploaded after the close of each business
day. HOWEVER, before ordering any license verification(s),
you should always check the bottom right corner of the page for the
date and time the data has been updated.
