How to transfer my Alaska LPN license to CA license

  1. How do I go about transferring my Alaska licensure to the California State board of nursing? Or is there a way I could see if my Alaska LPN license is accepted as an RN license?

    With the utmost respect, a LVN (that's what they call LPNs here) is not the same as a RN in California. So I sincerely doubt that you could convert an AK LPN license to a CA RN license. That being said, you could always ask...but I really don't think it will work.

    BON for LVNs:
    Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians

    BON for RNs:
    Board of Registered Nursing

    Best of luck.
