Description
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing began exploring the mutual recognition model of nurse licensure. This model, which NCSBN called the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), allows a nurse to have one license and to practice in other states as long as that nurse acknowledges that he or she is subject to each state’s practice laws and discipline.
