LPN Licenses Expire May 31, 2024

Renewal reminders were emailed to LPNs on March 1, 2024 from nursing@pr.mo.gov. You should add nursing@pr.mo.gov and nursingpractice@pr.mo.gov to your trusted or safe sender email list. You can conduct an internet search using Google or another search engine to see how to do this based on the email system you use.

You are required to inform the Board of any changes to your contact information within 30 days. Use the form found at https://pr.mo.gov/nursing-address.asp to provide an update. It takes 3-4 business days after your renewal is received before your license is renewed. You will not receive a license card. Go to https://www.nursys.com/enotify and enroll yourself in e-Notify as a Nurse in order to receive notification when your license is actually renewed. As an added benefit, you will also receive license renewal reminders and notification of any changes to your license or discipline status by enrolling yourself in this free service.

The public, including employers, can verify your license at https://www.nursys.com/ by clicking on LOOK UP A LICENSE on the QuickConfirm pane (the center pane). This is a free service.

No Grace Period to Renew

A nurse is required to renew 3 business days prior to the expiration date. Failure to do so may result in the license becoming lapsed, which requires the nurse to complete a reinstatement application, submit additional fees and submit to fingerprint background checks.

Geographic Proximity Joint Rule Change

Changes were made to 334.104 RSMo effective August 28, 2023. Specifically, the law was amended to limit the joint promulgation of rules between the Board of Nursing and the Board of Registration for the Healing Arts (BOHA) regarding collaborative practice to two areas - methods of treatment that may be covered by a collaborative practice arrangement and requirements for the review of services. The requirement for joint promulgation of rules related to geographic proximity was removed.

The Board of Registration for the Healing Arts and the Board of Nursing have filed a joint rule change to remove the geographic proximity requirements from 20 CSR 2200-4.200 for nursing and 20 CSR 2150-5.100 for physicians, which includes the 75 mile restriction. There is a 30 day comment period that began March 1, 2024. You may send comments to nursingpractice@pr.mo.gov.

Emergency Rule Issued Regarding LPN IV Medication Administration

The Missouri State Board of Nursing has issued an emergency rule allowing graduate practical nurses, IV-Certified licensed practical nurses, and licensed practical nurses who hold a multi-state license and are IV-certified to administer IV push or bolus medications under certain circumstances. The individual must receive additional individualized education and experience with documented competency verification by the employer before being allowed to engage in these activities. There are certain limitations. Be sure to read the rule in its entirety and pay special attention to the function/duties that cannot be performed under any circumstances. The emergency rule is effective January 22, 2024, and expires July 19, 2024. You may view the rule at https://www.sos.mo.gov/adrules/EmergenciesforInternet/emergency. A proposed rule has also been filed and is slated to be published in the February 15, Missouri Register. The public will have an opportunity to submit comments on the proposed rule.
