Nurse Portal Information for Online Renewals
Creating a New Account Process

Prior to completing your licensure renewal application(s), every Louisiana RN and APRN licensee will need to create a user account and complete the email validation process within LSBN's new NURSE PORTAL. Below is some information you will need to know in order to access the new Nurse Portal and complete your online renewal. Board Staff is available to assist you every step of the way!

  1. You will be required to create a new account. Your current username and password will not allow you to access the new system. Your user name for the new Nurse Portal must be a valid email address which should preferably be a personal email. A personal email address will help you avoid most delivery issues associated with company firewalls. If you do not have an email address, you can create one at any one of the free email address providers such as AOL, Google, Outlook, or Yahoo.
  2. Your initial account set-up involves a 2-step verification of your identity. To do this you will need your name, license number, birth year and the last four digits of your Social Security Number. Step two is validating your email account. Once you enter your email address, the system will send a verification link to that email address. You will need to click that link within 24-hours to verify your email address. Both steps must be completed in order to successfully create a new account. If you do not access the email verification link within 24-hours, it will expire and you will have to restart the registration process.
  3. LSBN now has biennial renewal for those whose last name begins with the letters A-M which means that:

    ****Licensees whose last name begins with the letters A-M will renew during the 2018 renewal season and will be renewing their license(s) for a 2-year period. Such biennial license(s) will be active from January 1, 2018 and expire on December 31, 2019.

    ****Licensees whose last name begins with the letters N-Z will renew during the 2018 renewal season and will be renewing their license(s) for a 1-year period with renewed license(s) active from January 1, 2018 and expiring December 31, 2018. Licensees whose last name begins with the letters N-Z will begin biennial renewal processes next year.

If you utilized LSBN's NURSE PORTAL during last renewal season, simply log into your same account.

In order to receive push notifications with license status updates, you will be prompted within the portal to enroll with Nursys eNotify.

Your RN/APRN license is due for renewal by January 31, 2018 11:59:00 PM CST. You can renew on-line beginning October 1, 2017 12:00:00 AM CST. A late fee will be charged if you have not renewed on or before December 31, 2017 11:59:00 PM CST.
