CMSA Today - Issue 1, 2018 - 22

case managers tend to practice in many states, the NLC helps to
remove some of the tremendous burden associated with being
licensed in multiple states.
In 2015, the NLC underwent a comprehensive revision that resulted
in a new compact known as the enhanced NLC. The enhanced NLC
will replace the original NLC, which is anticipated to be phased
out in the near future. The enhanced NLC will be implemented on
January 19, 2018. Although 26 states have enacted the enhanced
NLC to date, the ultimate goal is for this legislation to be enacted
nationwide. The revisions made to the compact will enable us to
move closer toward realizing that goal.
To help case managers stay abreast of the impending changes with
the NLC, we are providing responses to commonly asked questions.
GENERAL QUESTIONS
1.	Where do I find the application for a multistate license?
How do I get a multistate license? When can I apply?
Applications and the process to obtain multistate status will be available on the board of nursing website in compact states by January
19, 2018. Some states may post the application sooner. Fees will vary
by state. To be eligible, an applicant must declare his or her primary
state of residence in a compact state. You will not find an application
on the NCSBN or NurseCompact.com websites.
2.	Am I eligible for a multistate license? Do I meet the
requirements?
We cannot confirm eligibility for licensure. The boards of nursing
review applications that are submitted and can notify you of eligibility. You can review a list of the multistate license requirements at
https://www.ncsbn.org/eNLC-ULRs_082917.pdf.
3.	How do I know if I am grandfathered into the eNLC?
Grandfathering means that the individual will not need to take steps
to obtain an enhanced multistate license. It will be automatic on
January 19, 2018.
An individual eligible for grandfathering meets the following
criteria:
	 o	 Is a resident of an original NLC state that has enacted the
enhanced NLC.
	 o	Held an original NLC multistate license on July 20, 2017.
	 o	Has not had a disqualifying event since July 20, 2017, which
would nullify the grandfathering.
		Examples of disqualifying events include but are not limited to:
	*  Changing primary state of residence to another state.
	 *  Allowing the license to lapse.
	*  Being convicted of any felony.

	 *  Being convicted of a misdemeanor related to the practice
of nursing whereby the conviction is determined to be a
disqualifying event by the board of nursing.
	*  Having a license disciplined and placed probation or with
any practice restrictions.
	*  Current enrollment in an alternative program.
NURSES WITH PRIMARY STATE OF RESIDENCE
IN WI, CO, NM OR RI
1.	My primary state of residence is one of the four original NLC states (WI, CO, NM and RI) that have not enacted
the enhanced NLC yet. Do I need to apply for a single
state license in other original NLC states that enacted the
enhanced NLC, if I practice in one of them?
This response depends on whether your primary state of residence
in WI, CO, NM or RI enacts the enhanced NLC by January 19, 2018.
If it does enact by the deadline, then you will be in the enhanced
NLC. For example, you are a resident of CO and practice in AZ. If CO
enacts the enhanced NLC then CO and AZ are in the same compact
and you can practice in any enhanced NLC state. This assumes that
either you were grandfathered into enhanced NLC or if you applied
after July 20, 2017, you were reviewed according to the enhanced NLC
requirements and were issued the enhanced NLC multistate license.
If CO does not enact the enhanced NLC by January 19, 2018,
and you practice in AZ, for example, which has enacted enhanced
NLC, then you will need an AZ single state license by January 19,
2018. You obtain that by applying for license by endorsement with
AZ Board of Nursing.
2.	My primary state of residence is one of the four original
NLC states (WI, CO, NM and RI) that have not enacted the
enhanced NLC yet, but is trying. Do I need to apply for a
single state license in other original NLC states that also
have not enacted the enhanced NLC, for example, RI or
NM, if I practice there?
One scenario: your primary state of residence is CO and you practice
in RI, for example and CO does enact the enhanced NLC but RI
does not. Then you will need to apply for a RI single state license
by endorsement.
If CO does not enact enhanced NLC by January 19, 2018, and you
practice in NM, for example, and NM has not enacted enhanced NLC,
then both states are still in the original NLC and you can practice in
NM on your CO multistate license that is valid in NM. This will likely
be for a limited amount of time because each of the original NLC
states are working hard to pass the enhanced NLC.
