What is the enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC)?

In March 2016, the enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) was enrolled into Florida law. The enhanced NLC will allow Florida’s registered nurses (RN) and licensed practical nurses (LPN) to have one multi-state license with the ability to practice in all nursing compact member states. The enhanced NLC will come into effect either when 26 states pass legislation supporting the enhanced NLC or on December 21, 2018, whichever comes first. For more information about the NLC, please visit the NLC Website.
