Nurse Licensure Compact
Nurse Licensure Compact Logo (Aug. 21, 2020) – The Nurse Licensure Compact allows a nurse to have one multi-state license with the ability to practice in the home state and other compact states. Thirty-three states have implemented NLC legislation, including Kansas. The NLC increases access to care while maintaining public protection at the state level. The NLC has been operational and successful for more than 15 years. The compact removes a burdensome expense not only for nurses, but also organizations that employ nurses and may share the expenditure of multiple licenses. There are several upcoming webinar presentations on the NLC in August through November. For webinar dates, FAQs, the fact sheet and other resources on the NLC, visit the NLC webpage. The Kansas State Board of Nursing also links to the NLC.
