Pre-Application Eligibility Determination Process
LSBN is responsible for licensing registered nurses (RN) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRN). Recently, a new program was introduced called the Pre-Application Eligibility Determination Process, designed to help individuals who have a criminal record determine if they are eligible for licensure. If you have a criminal record, you can provide information about your conviction(s) to the LSBN through the request form below for a determination of your eligibility. The LSBN will consider all the information provided by you, including your criminal history background check, to determine your eligibility. The LSBN will not conduct an independent criminal background check for pre-application eligibility determination requests. Therefore, it is important for you to provide complete and accurate information for an accurate determination.

Note: If you hold a current LSBN license, submitting a pre-application eligibility determination request for a different license may result in an investigation into your current license regarding the reported criminal conviction.
