SWEET HOME ALABAMA | THE LATEST EDITION TO THE eNLC

Be ready to sing Sweet Home Alabama in 2020! 

As of January 1, 2020, Alabama is officially the latest state to become part of the Nurse Licensure Compact! This just after Kansas and Louisiana joining in July of 2019. 

Under the Nurse Licensure Compact, traveling nurses can practice in other NLC states without having to obtain additional licenses. To be eligible in a multistate license, you must claim primary residence in one of the current compact states. The NLC is relevant to RN & LPN licenses, an APRN must hold an individual license in each state of APRN practice. 

For travel nurses from Alabama, you can now apply for multi-state designation! This means your state license will be recognized in all participating compact states which includes 31 other states (List Below). If you’ve always wanted to work in Alabama, and currently reside in a compact state, you can work in Alabama with your current license! 

Who’s ready to jump in the car, turn up ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ and head south? Well, browse all of our current assignments, by discipline below, and apply now!
