NURSES WITH PRIMARY STATE OF RESIDENCE
IN FL, GA, OK, WV, WY
1. My primary state of residence is one of the states (FL, GA,
OK, WV, WY) that is new to the compact starting January 19,
2018. Am I automatically covered under a multistate license
on that date?
No, you are not automatically granted a multistate license. Each licensee
in these states will need to request the enhanced NLC multistate
license from the home state board of nursing. Check the board of
nursing website for more details. Each state will have its own process
for reviewing applicants who request MSL status. Also, each state will
determine if a MSL fee will be charged as well as the amount of the fee.
Access the board of nursing website for more details. Each board
will start to accept applications no later than January 19, 2018. Some
states may accept applications prior to January 19, 2018.
2. My primary state of residence is one of the five states (FL,
GA, OK, WV, and WY) that are new to the eNLC. I also have a
license in one of the other eNLC states, for example, Virginia.
Can I stop renewing my Virginia license after January 2018?
First, you need to apply to obtain multistate licensure status in your
primary state of residence. This is described in #1 of this section. Once
you have been issued a multistate license, then you will be informed
you may hold only one multistate license from one compact state and
should not renew the VA license (or a license in any enhanced NLC
state), which is due after January 19, 2018.
RESIDENTS OF ORIGINAL NLC STATES
THAT ENACTED ENHANCED NLC
1. My primary state of residence is a member of the original
NLC and it enacted the enhanced NLC. What do I need to do
to get the eNLC multistate license?
You are likely grandfathered, in which case, there is nothing you need
to do to obtain the enhanced NLC multistate license. See #3 under
General Questions to see if you meet the criteria. Also, be sure to review
the enhanced NLC map of member states to see if the states you need
authority to practice in are members of the enhanced NLC. If not,
then you may need to apply for a single state license in any such state.
If you are obtaining a license for the first time in this state and it is
after July 20, 2017, then it is important to know if your application was
reviewed according to the original NLC requirements or the enhanced
NLC requirements. You can only hold an enhanced multistate license
if you met the requirements for that license.
2. My primary state of residence is an original NLC state that
enacted the enhanced NLC. I also practice in 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 (WI, CO, NM and RI) since I practice there?
The response depends on whether WI, CO, NM or RI (the state of
practice ) enacts the enhanced NLC by January 19, 2018. If it does
enact by the deadline, then your home state and state of practice are
both in the enhanced NLC. For example, you are a resident of AZ and
practice in CO. 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.
In this example, if the state of practice does not enact the enhanced
NLC, then you do need to apply for a single state license in that state.
Bear in mind that although the state may accept applications, it is
unable to make the license effective (active) until January 19, 2018.
3. My primary state of residence is one of the original NLC states
that enacted the enhanced NLC, for example, Virginia. I also
have a license in one of the five states (FL, GA, OK, WV, and
WY) that are new to the eNLC. Can I stop renewing my (FL,
GA, OK, WV, WY) license after January 2018?
Not immediately. First, you need ensure that you hold an enhanced NLC
multistate license. You can verify this status using the quick confirm
feature at www.nursys.com. If you do, then you will not need to renew,
for example, a FL license (or a license in any enhanced NLC state) which
is due after January 19, 2018.
4. My primary state of residence is in the original NLC and it
enacted the enhanced NLC. Is there anything I need to do to
be able to practice in any of the five states (FL, GA, OK, WV,
and WY) that are new to the eNLC on January 19, 2018?
If you hold an enhanced multistate license, verified by using the quick
confirm feature of www.nursys.com, then there is nothing additional
you need to do to practice in any of the new states or in any enhanced
NLC state starting January 19, 2018.
RESIDENTS OF A NON-COMPACT STATE
1. My primary state of residence is a non-compact state. How
do the changes impact me? What do I need to do?
Since you are a resident of a non-compact state, you do not hold a
multistate license. Therefore, you are not impacted and there is nothing you need to do. If you apply for a license in a compact state, your
eligibility is limited to a single state license due to the fact you your
primary state of residence is a non-compact state. ■
