Nurse Licensure Compact - page 2

I was wondering if anyone has anything that they have experienced negatively when exercising their compact privileges. Our state hasn't become a compact state as of yet. There is talk about Louisiana... Read More

    Thanks for the corrections.
    -I was also wondering about keeping my Texas license, as well. I will only be in La for 1 year, so it's good to know I can go right back to nursing in Tx with out going through the board again.

    Louisiana (my home state), is full of bureaucratic bull. Always has been and always will be, when it comes to basically anything you can think of. If I didn't love my city so much (New Orleans), I would have been long gone, long ago without turning back.

    The above poster is definitely correct in my opinion. But there is much more to it than that. Some states do not require criminal background checks, as Louisiana does, so they feel we may be getting some less than desirable nurses into our state through the compact.

    If you want to know more about the politics and pros and cons of the compact send me a pm and I will forward you a paper I did on this subject for a healthcare mgmt course.
    Hi Glascow. I am a RN from Ohio currently in classes for my BSN. I have a debate in a few days regarding the nursing licensure compact and I was assigned to be on the "against" side with my part arguing the potential legal ramifications. This has proven nearly impossible since I have found no "against" until I found your comment made last year on this site. However, I am so very intersted in what you could share with me since you obviously completed a very similar assignment in the past. Please send any helpful info asap, and I would be forever grateful!
    Sincerely, Participle (which refers to nothing except a word I heard on the radio while signing up for this website!)

    I just happened to see this thread while searching for the states that are part of the compact agreement.

    I found this website that lists the current states: http://www.mbon.org/main.php?v=norm&...ct_states.html.



    I think this is a good thing..not that I ever plan on moving out of Texas, but you never know what the future will bring.


    Also, I do believe ALL states should do background checks....for the record.

    In response to the original question of the thread, which was about people's experience exercising their compact license privileges, I have just recently used mine for the first time (after holding a compact license for quite a few years) -- I started a new job in the "next door" state recently, and was hired without any discussion at all of my license -- no one even commented on the fact that my license was from my state instead of theirs; they took it completely in stride.

    While it's true that some states don't require as extensive background checks as we do in Louisiana; we still have travel nurses coming into the state to work presently even without the compact. Therefore, not having a compact will only hurt the good and proficient nurses and not stop the bad from going to wherever they wish to work
