The Louisiana State Board of Nursing (LSBN) works diligently to establish standards for nursing practice and nursing education that seek to ensure that Louisiana citizens have access to safe and competent registered nurses. On July 10, 1912, Act No. 138 of the 1912 Regular Session of the General Assembly of the State of Louisiana provided for the regulation of nursing practice and education and the signing of the first Nurse Practice Act. One hundred years later, Resolution No. 190 was signed to commemorate the signing of the first Nurse Practice Act in Louisiana and to recognize July 10, 2012 as Louisiana State Board of Nursing Day.
