Past Event: 2016 Nurse Licensure Compact Forum

Nurse Licensure Compact Forum: Unlocking Access to Nursing Care Across the Nation

Event Presentations

Event Description

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) invites you to join us in a discussion about licensure portability, new opportunities available to nurses today, and how changes to the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) enhance access to the vital care that nurses provide.

In today’s rapidly changing health care environment, patients expect and deserve quality nursing care provided to them whether they live in an urban area, a small city or a remote town. The 100-year-old traditional model of nurse licensure is not flexible, adaptable or nimble enough to meet these important needs.

Our panel participants bring a broad, informed perspective, and range from a state representative, association president, a military spouse and a nurse case manager, to those heavily involved in caring for patients in situations where greater nurse mobility would be very beneficial such as telemedicine and dialysis.
