The Nurse Licensure Compact: A Bad Fit for Alaska

The Nurse Licensure Compact was created by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, a private, non-regulatory, non-governmental trade association. The compact acts as a multistate license, allowing nurses licensed in compact states to practice in all other compact states under one license. If Alaska became a compact state, anyone licensed in other compact states could practice here without obtaining a separate Alaska license. Sounds like an intriguing idea, right? Take a closer look at why this is actually a bad idea for Alaska, Alaskan nurses, and Alaskan patients.
