The APRN Compact and the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) allow nurses to practice in other compact states with a single multistate license. The NLC gives multistate rights to registered nurses (RN) and licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPN/VN) residing in a member state. The APRN Compact gives the same rights to advanced practice registered nurses.
This video overview of the NLC explains the difference between single state and multistate licensure. Learn which registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPN/VNs) are eligible for a multistate nursing license.
