MultiState Licensure

What Does the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC/eNLC) Mean to You?

If you live in a dark blue state (and Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Ohio) on this map, I can legally provide remote telehealth services to you as a registered nurse, even if I not physically located in your state at the time.

Multistate licensure is a system in which a single license allows a nurse to practice in more than one state.  This model allows practice, whether physical or electronic, across state lines through the nurse being licensed in a state that has adopted the interstate model.


(National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. Telenursing: A Challenge to Regulation.  National Council Position Paper, 1997)


Multistate Licensure Privilege:
 

Authority to practice as a licensed nurse in a remote state under the current license issued by the individual’s home state, provided both states are party to the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC/eNLC) and the privilege is not otherwise restricted.
