Work requirement

 

One of the most commonly asked questions when lpns call our office is, "How many hours do I have to work each year to renew my license?"

There is no minimum amount of hours per year.  However, lpns cannot go 4 or more years without some practice as an lpn.  Should you exceed this time period, you may be required to successfully complete a board approved refresher course before being eligible to renew/reinstate your lpn license.

If you have been informed that you need to take a refresher course, visit Refresher Courses for more information.
