Licensing Compacts (Nurse Licensure Compact)
Passed 06/28/2021


Pennsylvania joined the Nurse Compact in 2021 after working with stakeholders including the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association, who spent five years studying the implementation of the NLC in other states. Survey results from fifteen of those states "were overwhelmingly positive. Reservations initially expressed by some groups, such as significant lost revenue to the State Board of Nursing or public safety concerns, have not materialized."
