As of January 2, 2024, a significant update in the nursing licensure process will come into effect, impacting those who hold or intend to hold a compact license. This change is crucial for all nursing professionals to understand, as it aligns with the evolving nature of nursing regulations and practices.    What is Changing?   The Interstate Commission of Nurse Licensure Compact Administrators (ICNLCA) has adopted a new residency rule requiring nurses to obtain a new home state license within 60 days of relocating. This rule mandates that your home state of residence must coincide with the state where your license is issued.  Moving Within Compact States : Upon relocating, nurses with a compact license should establish residency in their new state as soon as possible, such as updating their driver's license and applying for a new license with multi-state privileges. Start this process early, as issuing the new license can take time. You're allowed to work on your old nursing license for 60 days post-relocation. Ensure you notify the state board of your previous state about your new address so they can inactivate your old license once you obtain the new one. Also, remember to inform your recruiter or the appropriate contact at your organization about your new address and updated license details.  Moving to a Non-Compact State : If you're a nurse relocating to a non-compact state, apply for that license as soon as possible as well. Remember, your current license will only have multi-state privileges for 60 days after moving. Make sure to notify your recruiter and current employer, especially if your employment extends beyond those 60 days, to avoid working without a valid license. It's crucial to inform your recruiter of your new address and the details of your new home state license.  Why The Change?  Pam Zickafoose, EdD, MSN, RN, NE-BC, CNE, FRE, executive director of the Delaware Board of Nursing and ICNLCA Chair, explains that this rule aims to streamline the licensure process, mirroring the requirement of obtaining a new driver's license when moving to a new state. This ensures that all nurses are appropriately licensed according to their state of residence, benefiting both the nurses and their employers.   Resources for More Information   Nurse License Compact (NLC) FAQs:  Nurse Compact FAQs   Moving Scenarios: Relocating to Another State:  Relocating to Another State Factsheet    Understanding these changes is vital for those with compact licenses, as it affects your eligibility to practice in different states.   If you have any questions regarding these changes or how they might impact your licensure, please do not hesitate to contact your Fastaff recruiter for guidance and assistance. Your career and compliance with nursing regulations are our utmost priority.
