Ask A Travel Nurse: Compact Licensure

Ask A Travel Nurse: Compact Licensure


Travel Nurse compact licensureGypsy,

I’m just beginning to realize the headache involved in applying for nursing licenses in other states…

How long do I have to live in a compact state to obtain compact licensure? Also, do you automatically have a compact license if you are a nurse in a compact state? It’s so confusing!

Flighty One,

Thank you for contacting The Gypsy Nurse.  Licensure can be a headache.  As for the compact license, you will be eligible once you have established your state residency.  Usually this requires auto registration, drivers license, banking and voter registration.  Check with each states BON to determine their specific requirements.

I recently wrote an article addressing Compact State licensure.  Please read through the Compact State Licensure Article and let me know if you have further questions.

I hope that this helps to answer your questions.
