Pennsylvania To Allow Nurses with Multistate Licenses to Begin Practicing in the State Sept. 5, 2023

Pennsylvania, which enacted the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) in 2021, will allow nurses holding an active, unencumbered multistate license to begin practicing in the commonwealth on Sept. 5.

Although the NLC has been enacted in Pennsylvania, an implementation process must be completed before its residents will be able to apply for a multistate license. Residents of Pennsylvania will be unable to obtain a multistate license until the NLC is fully implemented in the commonwealth.
