The Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) is an agreement that allows 'mutual recognition' of a nursing license between member states in the United States of America. Enacted into law by the participating states, member states allow a nurse that resides in and possesses a current nursing license in a state that is a member of the NLC to practice in any of the other member states without obtaining additional licensure in that state. It applies to both registered and practical nurses and is also referred to as a multi-state license.[1]

While a nurse's license may be multi-state, permanent relocation to another Compact state requires obtaining licensure in the new state, as their residency has changed. Likewise, a license obtained in a Compact state that is not one's primary state of residence is not mutually recognized by the other NLC members.

Participating states[edit]

Three other states have active Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact bills( Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts). Nursing groups in nine more states are actively lobbying to recruit legislators who are willing to sponsor and support, compact licensure bills.
