The Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC) has been implemented as of January 19, 2018.

The eNLC increases access to care while maintaining public protection at the state level.

Under the eNLC, nurses are able to provide care to patients in other eNLC states, without having to obtain additional licenses. Nurses with an original NLC multistate license will be grandfathered into the eNLC. New applicants residing in compact states will need to meet 11 uniform licensure requirements. Those who do not meet the new licensure requirements may still be eligible for a single state license.
