I graduate from a Practical Nursing program in Louisiana in May of this year. I recently found out that Louisiana does not issue temporary licenses any more. My question is can I work as a graduate in Louisiana?

Moved to Louisiana state nursing forum many states no longer issue temporary or interim permits. Best source will be LA BoN though as they have the final say.
