Louisiana should join the Nursing Licensure Compact

This petition had 95 supporters

The Nursing Licensure Compact is an agreement between states to mutually recognize the license of RNs and LPNs. The agreement currently consists of twenty five states; a number which is constantly growing. In these states, a nurse that holds a compact license can practice in member states with a single, multi-state license while pursuing permanent licensure in the state of his/her residence. Also, it allows travel nurses to work on short notice without the roadblocks and headaches of the endorsement process. This movement is supported by a number of national nursing associations as well as federal agencies, which can be found here:

We, as Registered Nurses and Practical Nurses, believe that inclusion into the compact will better address the current nursing shortage in the state of Louisiana, eliminate wasteful spending of tax dollars, and advance our state's standing on the national stage.
