  • What is the Nurse Licensure Compact and what revisions did the National Council of State Boards of Nursing make to the compact in May 2015?
  • How does the revised compact address barriers and disadvantages identified in the 2006 OPPAGA report?
  • How does the revised compact affect benefits identified in the 2006 OPPAGA report?
  • What options are available if the Legislature is interested in participating in the Nurse Licensure Compact?
