Implementation Date Set for Enhanced NLC

Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC) Commission members have set Friday, Jan. 19, 2018, as the implementation date for the eNLC. There are 26 states in the eNLC.*

The original NLC will remain in effect with Colorado, New Mexico, Rhode Island and Wisconsin as members until each enacts eNLC legislation. As of the implementation date, the multistate license held by nurses residing in these four states will only be valid in those states. They will not have the authority to practice in the 26 eNLC states without applying for a single-state license in those states, unless the original NLC states join the eNLC by the implementation date.

Likewise, nurses with an eNLC multistate license residing in eNLC states will not have the authority to practice in the four states that are still in the original NLC without applying for a single-state license in those states, unless the states join the eNLC by that date.

Additional information about eNLC implementation can be found here and at For the latest information, follow the eNLC on Twitter or Facebook.

*eNLC states include: Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming.
