The Nurse Licensure Compact

The Nurse Licensure Compact advances public protection and access to care through the mutual recognition of one state-based license that is enforced locally and recognized nationally.

If you are a Registered Nurse practicing in states that are considering joining the Compact, it is imperative that you understand the Compact and how it will benefit the practice of nursing.
