RN State Licensing
and Compact State Nursing License Resource
WHAT is the NLC?
The Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) allows nurses to uphold patient care when necessary in the various partaking states. Nurses who live in a designated compact nursing state are able to obtain a compact license (multi-state license) to practice in other compact nursing states without having to purchase or apply for an additional state license.
