CE Audit Has Commenced   

On Wednesday, September 14, 2016, nurses randomly selected to demonstrate completion of the proper quantity and type of accredited nursing continuing education (CE) during the 2015 year, were mailed letters to their address of record as reported to the Louisiana State Board of Nursing (LSBN).  A copy of the audit notification and instructions were also sent to the nurse’s email address on file with LSBN.

If you have received a notice by email and/or postal mail advising you have been selected for audit of your 2015 nursing CEs, your full and complete audit response packet must arrive at the LSBN office no later than Friday, October 14, 2016.    

The determination of compliance (or non-compliance) with LSBN CE rules will be based on your first and initial audit response packet received at the LSBN office.  Faxed and/or emailed documents will not be accepted.  Mail or hand-deliver audit documentation together in one (1) envelope to the LSBN office ATTN: CE Audit

To ensure a positive audit outcome, it is imperative that each nurse take the time to read each question and answer provided on the ‘CE Audit FAQ list carefully prior to compiling and submitting their audit response packet to LSBN.  This FAQ list provides valuable information and tools via embedded ‘links’ to help the nurse provide the correct documentation to LSBN and explains how to submit his/her response packet to the board office before the 10/14/16 deadline.  Click here to read the full ‘CE Audit FAQ’ list.
