Nurse License

Nursing license requirements vary by state. According to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing , the minimum requirements for both registered nurse (RN) and licensed practical nurse (LPN) candidates include graduation, or verification of completion and eligibility for graduation, from a state-approved nursing program; successful completion of the NCLEX examination; self-report any and all criminal convictions, chemical dependencies, and functional ability deficits. State Boards of Nursing are the governmental agencies in charge of setting guidelines for nursing licensure and practice. These Boards are responsible for evaluating nursing license applications, administering the licensure exams, and for making sure that licensed nurses operate according to the ethical and legal guidelines that they have established in accordance with the federal government.
