As of November 15, 2021, New Jersey is officially the latest state to become part of the Nurse Licensure Compact! This just after Indiana joined in July of 2020 (click here).
Under the Nurse Licensure Compact, traveling nurses can practice in other NLC states without having to obtain additional licenses. To be eligible for a multistate license, you must claim primary residence in one of the current compact states. The NLC is relevant to RN & LPN licenses, an APRN must hold an individual license in each state of APRN practice.
For travel nurses from New Jersey, you can now apply for multi-state designation! This means your state license will be recognized in all participating compact states which includes 33 other states (List Below). If you’ve always wanted to work in Indiana, and currently reside in a compact state, you can work in Indiana with your current license!
