Hi all!

I am a student at University of Texas and I am going to graduate in May 2011 with a BSN. After graduation I am moving back to Louisiana. I was wondering if anyone could give me some info on applying for NCLEX/Licensure in Louisiana (LA BON has not returned my emails/ calls on this matter) and point me in the direction of some nursing recruiters in the BR/NOLA area.

Any help or information is much appreciated, because I need all the help I can get!!!

Thanks so much!

Surprised to hear the LA BON hasn't returned your call, but keep trying. I got through to them relatively easy. They will send you the application packet (the online application/forms are incomplete) and mine came pretty quickly. You'll need to have your state board sign their form, get fingerprinted, submit to a background, and I can't remember if transcripts were required.. at any rate the whole process took about 6 weeks. I DID have to hound them after a month to ask them what the holdup was (I'm impatient). They did end up making a mistake with one of my forms because they were waiting on my employment info and I told them a million times I didn't have an employer and that's why I was moving back to LA! Good luck.

I have never had a problem getting them. Keep calling and yes transcripts are required and a form has to be filled out by the school. Good luck.
