Rhode Island Joins 22 Other Member States in the Nurse Licensure Compact

It's official, Rhode Island is now a compact state. It is the 23rd state to join the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC).

Established in January 2001 as an interstate agreement among Utah, Maryland, Arizona, and Wisconsin, the NLC became a successful mutual recognition model of nurse licensure allowing nurses to have one license (in his/her state of residency) and practice in other participating states without the need to apply for a separate license in that state.

At present, the NLC is composed of 23 member states and has received widespread support from many state nursing associations, hospital associations, and the U.S. Department of Commerce as it provides for improved access to licensed nurses and quality nursing services in times of great need.
