How do I keep my LPN license active without working?

Nurses Retired

Published

I am studying for the NCLEX-RN and have taken a break from working until I get my RN license. However, I don't want my LPN license to lapse. I have been inactive for a long time and don't know the different tricks nurses do to keep it active. Any and all suggestions are welcomed.

In my state all you have to do is to complete your required CEUs and pay the fee when it is due. It is my understanding that some states may require paid work. If that is the case in your state, then all you have to do is to sign up with one of the companies that do flu shot clinics. I have met several "retired" nurses who only ever work these clinics. Of course to find out the requirements in your state, contact your Board.
