What is endorsement?

Endorsement is the method of application for an lpn/lvn currently licensed in another state who wants to obtain a license to practice in Louisiana.

It is illegal to practice practical nursing in the state of Louisiana without a temporary work permit issued by our board or a current Louisiana lpn license.

To determine if you meet the qualifications for licensure by endorsement, please review the Requirements for Endorsement webpage.

If you have EVER held a Louisiana lpn license, you do not qualify for endorsement. You must request reinstatement of your Louisiana license.
