October 31, 2016 was the deadline for a licensed practical nurse (LPN) to renew their Ohio LPN nursing license with the Ohio Board of Nursing.
If you are an LPN who did not renew your Ohio LPN nursing license by the October 31, 2016 deadline, your Ohio LPN nursing license is now lapsed. You may check the status of your license at the following link:
As long as your Ohio LPN nursing license is lapsed, you are not authorized to practice nursing in Ohio. The Ohio Board of Nursing can take a disciplinary action against a LPN for engaging in the practice of nursing in Ohio having failed to renew their Ohio LPN nursing license.
If your Ohio LPN nursing license has lapsed and you want to be authorized to work as an LPN in Ohio, you must submit an online application to reinstate your Ohio LPN nursing license, which will require Ohio Board of Nursing review.
