PLANNED INTERRUPTION OF SERVICES
posted on July 05, 2018

NOTICE TO EMPLOYERS, STAKEHOLDERS AND APPLICANTS FOR LICENSURE PLANNED INTERRUPTION OF SERVICES

For the past several years, LSBN has been developing a new regulatory management system called ORBS.  ORBS will help digitize most of LSBN’s licensing, discipline, and education program management functions; strengthen our disaster recovery capabilities; provide a more enhanced channel of communication with our current licensees and our future applicants. 

Therefore, please accept this notice LSBN will be experiencing a series of planned service interruptions as we transition to the new online system. The period of service interruption will begin on Friday, August 10, 2018 at 3pm and end on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at 12pm.
The following services will be temporarily disrupted:

  • ISSUANCE OF TEMPORARY PERMITS:  LSBN will retain its ability to issue temporary permits for those eligible candidates who “walk-in” and who meet requirements for a temporary permit by endorsement as indicated on the instructions for the endorsement applications.  However, a paper verification letter will be provided, not a paper license.
  • LICENSE VERIFCATION:  LSBN’s licensure verification portal may not be available. However, you may verify RN licensure at www.NURSYS.com. Please visit our website at www.LSBN.state.la.us to obtain information on how to verify an APRN license.
  • ISSUANCE OF LICENSES: Due to migration issues, LSBN will be unable to issue new licenses between August 21, 2018 at 3pm and August 29, 2018 at 12pm.  
  • ACCEPTANCE OF PAPER LICENSURE APPLICATIONS: The deadline for the submission of paper applications for licensure is Friday, August 10, 2018.  Thereafter, applicants for licensure will be able to submit their applications online via the ORBS portal beginning Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at 12pm.

As we continue to plan our transition to the new system, we will provide additional details via our website at www.lsbn.state.la.us.  We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by these unavoidable interruptions.
