LPN Licenses Expired May 31, 2024

There is no grace period for practice.
If you wish to renew, you will need the instruction letter and form to renew an expired Missouri RN license. Both can be found near the bottom of this page pr.mo.gov/nursing-licensure-lpn.asp under the heading, LPN License Reinstatement. Do not come to the Board of Nursing office. You cannot be renewed in person due to the fingerprint background check requirement.

  1. Enroll in Nursys® e-Notify as a Nurse at nursys.com/enotify. Missouri does not issue a license card. You will receive notification that your license is renewed through this system. LPN licenses expire May 31st of every even-numbered year. When enrolling yourself in e-Notify, opt into the option to receive electronic license renewal reminders.
  2. Complete, sign and date the LPN Petition for License Renewal form. Make sure you include your PERSONAL email address on the form. If your petition is deficient, you will be notified by email.
  3. Submit the LPN Petition with the required $127 fee payable to the Missouri State Board of Nursing. The fee may be a money order, cashier’s check or personal check. The fee is non-refundable. The Board’s address is in the upper-right hand corner of the form.
  4. Submit evidence of U.S. citizenship or lawful presence. An explanation of acceptable documents can be found in the instruction letter.
  5. Submit criminal background checks. This requires payment of a separate fee to the fingerprint vendor. Specific directions are in the instruction letter.

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. This rule will be effective July 30, 2024.

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/CMSImages/AdRules/moreg/2024/v49n4Feb15/v49n4.pdf. A proposed rule has also been filed and is slated to be effective June 30, 2024.
