Nurse Licensure Compact

The Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) Map

The Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) helps increase access to care and enables nurses to practice across state borders, which can alleviate strain during disasters. This agreement also allows CRNAs and NPs to provide vital care in a variety of locations across the country and eliminates the cumbersome process of obtaining additional licensure. A multistate license authorizes these providers to practice in their home state and all compact states with a single license, issued by the home state.
