Applicants should submit a resident initial application on NIPR prior to taking any required licensing examinations. Licensing exams cannot be scheduled until you complete a license application online with NIPR and receive an email authorization from PearsonVUE that you are eligible to take an exam.
You can access the NIPR site at the following link: http://www.nipr.com
NIPR applications are valid for six (6) months from the application submission date and the applicant must complete all requirements for the license application to be completed within this timeframe.
Once you have submitted a resident initial application on NIPR, you will need to make a reservation to take the state examination. PSI provides examination and fingerprinting services for Louisiana license applicants. Details about the examination process can be found on their website at www.candidate.psiexams.com.
