APRN Compact

The APRN Compact, approved May 4, 2015, allows an advanced practice registered nurse to hold one multistate license with a privilege to practice in other compact states. The APRN Compact will be implemented when 10 states have enacted the legislation.

NCSBN has developed a model for states to enact the Advanced Practice Nurse Compact. Below find model legislation and rules.
