Temporary License Processing & Walk-Through Service

It takes approximately 4-8 weeks to receive a temporary license in Louisiana after all of the required and necessary documents have been received by the board of nursing and the license will last for up to 90 days (must not have any prior convictions or disciplinary action to obtain).

Temporary licenses are only issued if the nurse is residing in Louisiana and has proof of the offer for employment.

Walk-in service for temporary licenses is available from 9am to 3pm. Licenses will be issued to the nurse within the same day.
