Here’s the Latest on State Licensing and Board of Nursing Information

Compact License States

The original Nurse Licensure Compact allows any nurse who resides in one of the 25 participating compact states to practice nursing in any of the states forming the compact state alliance. The new eNLC (Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact)  replaces the original NLC and provides extra protections. (see map below).

Please visit the Nurse License Compact Administrator website for more information: www.ncsbn.org/nlc.htm
