Rhode Island's nurse licensure compact now in effect

Rhode Island's entry into the multistate nurse licensure compact took effect Jan. 1, allowing registered nurses, licensed practical, and vocational nurses to practice in person or through a telehealth platform across participating states without needing to reapply for a license in that territory. 

It is now the 41st state to enter the agreement. 

The state's health department published guidelines and criteria for nurses who already practice in the state about what the impact will be to different licenses here.
