Welcome to the Hoosier state!

" The Nursing Licensure Compact (NLC) is an agreement between states that allows nurses to have one license but the ability to practice in other states that are part of the agreement.

Originally developed in 2000, in 2024 the license had grown to include at least 25 states. To help streamline the process for nurses the Enhanced Nursing Licensure Compact (eNLC) was implemented in 2018 and included standards for licensure which the originally compact license was lacking.

Each state needs a competent medical workforce to meet the needs of it’s citizens. However, the requirements for some health care professions are not the same in each state. That is why it is important to find out what is required of you as a future or current registered nurse before moving across state lines. Contact information is located at the bottom of this page.


For foreign nurses, if your original state of licensure does not directly provide verification of your foreign education credentials, you will need to submit official nursing school transcripts provided through CGFNS and an official copy of high school diploma or equivalent, or official transcripts. All documents must be accompanied with a certified English translation if not in English.
