  • Oklahoma LPN Licensing Requirements

    Oklahoma requires its LPN applicants to attend a Board-certified nursing program and pass the NCLEX exam within 2 years of graduation.

    In order to receive state licensure, the applicant must submit an application to the state, including:

    • Official transcripts from state-approved nursing program.
    • Proof of eligibility to work in the US.
    • Proof of passing the NCLEX.

    Oklahoma Nursing Forms and Applications (https://www.ok.gov/nursing/forms3.html)

    Physical strength and endurance are part of an LPN’s daily routine. Even though it may not be required at the time of application, it is definitely helpful in performing duties as a nurse.

    Out-of-state LPN's can apply for their license in the state of Oklahoma by endorsement. The applicant must submit the appropriate form and include:

    • Licensing verification and proof of continued competency by taking a refresher course or completing 6 academic hours or 105 contact hours.
    • Submit an employer verification form that proves licensure in another state with at least 520 hours worked over the last 2 years.
    • Official transcripts from state-approved nursing program.
    • Proof of passing the NCLEX-PN or the State Board Test Pool Examination (SBTPE).

    Foreign applicants must also submit a full course-by-course review of their official transcripts via the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS), as well as proof of English proficiency.

    Oklahoma LPN licenses expire every 2 years and require continuing qualifications for renewal. Licensees must complete one or more of the following requirements within the 2 year licensing period:

    • Employed in a nursing position and work at least 520 hours as a practical nurse.
    • Complete at least 24 contact hours of approved continued education.
    • Certify in a nursing specialty area.
    • Complete a board-approved refresher course.
    • Complete at least 6 academic semester credit hours in nursing (at or above current nursing level).
