The enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC) for RNs and LPNs was effective on July 20, 2017 when the 26th state enacted the eNLC. The eNLC implementation date has been set by the Interstate Commission of Nurse Licensure Compact Administrators to occur on January 19, 2018. Upon the implementation date, the Oklahoma Board of Nursing will start issuing multistate licenses to applicants/nurses that apply for a multistate license, meet the uniform licensure requirements, and declare Oklahoma as their primary state of residence. Those who do not want/need a multistate license or do not meet the uniform licensure requirements may apply for or continue to retain a single state license.
RNs and LPNs with an eNLC multistate license are able to practice nursing in other eNLC states, without having to obtain additional licenses. See the Map for an up-to-date list of eNLC states.
