If you hold a multi-state license, you can work in any state that is part of the compact. This is great news to meet the COVID-19 demand for nurses and it offers travel nurses a lot of flexibility. By working with Cross Country Nurses, you will get expert support to expedite the licensing process for you to work in any of the 50 U.S. states. Here are states that are a part of the compact licensure for nursing:
Cross Country Nurses will support you every step of the way to get you ready to be a travel nurse. We will help you navigate the compliance steps and regulatory paperwork, including:
• Vaccination records and a physical exam
• Copies of your license and certifications
• A drug test and background check
• Additional documentation that could be specifically required by certain healthcare facilities
Compact licensure is nationwide, although there are certain states for which you can receive a multi-state license to allow you to work in any compact state. Non-compact states require you to have that specific state’s licensure. There are 35 compact states and 15 non-compact states. (See the list.) But, just because you have a state license in a state that becomes compact doesn’t mean your license automatically becomes multi-state. As a nurse, you have to apply specifically for a multi-state license. We will help you to do that!
