Arkansas Licensure & Registration Info

The Arkansas State Board of Nursing licenses registered and practical nurses by examination. As Arkansas is a member of the Nurse Licensure Compact, RNs and LPNs who are licensed in and live in other states in the Compact do not need to apply for an Arkansas nursing license unless they plan to make Arkansas their residence and primary licensing state.
