What is Multi State Nurse Licensure Compact?

The Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) is an agreement between many states in the United States. This agreement lets nurses who have a license from one of these states also practice in the other participating states. So, if you have a multistate nursing license from a state that’s part of the NLC, you can use that license to work as a nurse in any other NLC state without needing to get a new license there.
