Notice of Rulemaking Activity

At its meeting held on October 13, 2022, the Louisiana State Board of Nursing approved an amendment of Chapter 35, Title 46, Professional and Occupational Standards, Part XLVII. Nurses: Registered Nurses. Subpart 2. Registered Nurses. Chapter 35. Undergraduate and Graduate Nursing Education Degree Programs. The proposed change will omit the percentage of Baccalaureate of Science in Nursing (BSN) prepared nurses with at least two years of clinical nursing experience allowed to work as faculty exceptions in approved Louisiana schools of nursing.

The first step in the rulemaking process is the publication of the Board's Notice of Intent in the December 20, 2022 edition of the Louisiana Register. As of December 20, 2022, you will be able to access the publication free of charge at the state register's website at The Notice of Intent can be found here.

The Board requests to receive comments on the proposed revisions by January 10, 2023. Please direct all written communication regarding this proposal to my attention at the Board office.

For the Board
