The Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) Commission Annual Report for fiscal year 2022 (FY22) is now available. It provides a comprehensive overview of the activities, achievements and financial performance of the Interstate Commission of Nurse Licensure Compact Administrators throughout the report period of Oct. 1, 2021 to Sept. 30, 2022. It also comprises a snapshot of recent accomplishments and a preview of NLC Commission goals in FY23.
"The NLC has grown to encompass 39 party states or territories," says 2022 NLC Commission Chair Pamela C. Zickafoose, EdD, MSN, RN, NE-BC, CNE, FRE. "Approximately 2 million nurses hold a multistate license, and more than ever they are embracing the mobility that the multistate license provides, such as the flexibility to work across state lines. As we remain united in our mission, guided by our strategic plan and inspired by our purpose, we strive to continue advocating for more states to join the NLC. We anticipate a bright outlook for 2023, as a number of states have developed coalitions, and an enhanced level of grassroots efforts is evident. We believe this will translate into the successful passage of NLC legislation in several states in the coming year."
