  • Louisiana State Board of Practical Nurse Examiners Announcement

    1/5/2017

    Big Picture Software is proud to announce the signing of a new contract with the Louisiana State Board of Practical Nurse Examiners (LSBPNE). Big Picture Software will replace the Board's older licensing system with a hosted cloud based e-Licensing software solution which will enable the Board to track licensees, process online applications and renewals, track and monitor the Board's disciplinary and enforcement along with online services such as license verification and licensee look-up. Big Picture Software's e-Licensing software will provide LSBPNE with secure hosting and dedicated customer and technical support.

    About LSBPNE

    The Louisiana State Board of Practical Nurse Examiners (LSBPNE) is a regulatory agency of state government given the responsibility to enforce laws which pertain to the practice of practical nursing. The legislature authorizes the board to carry out these responsibilities through La. Law, Title 37, Chapter 11, Part II. Practical Nurses, Section 961-979.

    The Board is comprised of 13 members consisting of six licensed practical nurses, two registered nurses, and five physicians each appointed by the governor of Louisiana.

    Board Responsibilites

    • Licensing of qualified individuals as LPNS.
    • Establishment of regulations for education of nurses and approval of nursing education programs.
    • Investigation of all allegations reported against an LPN while providing due process to the LPN.
    • Disciplinary action against any lpn who is found to have violated the Nurse Practice Act (NPA).
    • Promulgation of rules which assist the board to carry out its duties.

    How Big Picture Licensing Solutions Work

    Big Picture Software is a step above traditional licensing software solutions allowing regulatory boards and agencies the ability to implement a software solution quickly to meet the ever-changing needs of the staff, board members and public. With Big Picture Software, state regulatory boards actively work with a dedicated Implementation Specialist during each phase of the deployment, thus avoiding unforeseen delays and pitfalls. Unlike traditional software vendors, the Big Picture e-Licensing Software allows regulatory boards to implement as many or as few business processes that they want at the time of deployment.

    Because of the software's flexibility, configurability, and ability to meet a board's requirements, additional licensure functionality can be added at any time during or after the initial deployment of the software. This not only allows the board to choose which components and processes are critical at the onset of the implementation but also allows them to implement a licensing software solution within their current budget and needs.

    About Big Picture Software

    Big PictureTM Software offers government regulatory boards and agencies an e-Licensing solution that not only meets their current needs but is also robust enough to handle future enhancement requests as well as mandatory regulatory changes. The Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) software will continually improve the licensing process while eliminating repetitive, tedious and convoluted process to better serve staff and constituents over time
