eNLC UPDATE | WHO’S UP FOR 'GREEN MOUNTAIN STATE' ASSIGNMENTS IN 2022?

As of February 1, 2022, Vermont is officially the latest state to become part of the Nurse Licensure Compact! This just after New Jersey joined in November of 2021 (click here).

Under the Nurse Licensure Compact, traveling nurses can practice in other NLC states without having to obtain additional licenses. To be eligible for 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 Vermont, you can now apply for multi-state designation! This means your state license will be recognized in all participating compact states which includes 35 other states (List Below). If you’ve always wanted to work in Vermont, and currently reside in a compact state, you can work in Vermont with your current license! 

THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN VERMONT

  • Visit Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory

  • Hike the Camel's Hump Trail and see the incredible views

  • Go shopping and eat some delicious food at Church Street Market Place
