NC is a compact state, so it's SC.
When moving From one compact state to another:
You can practice on the former residency license for up to 30 days. You will be required to:
- Apply for licensure by endorsement (It is recommended that nurses apply 1-2 months in advance of a move.)
- Pay any applicable fees
- Complete a declaration of primary state of residency in the new home state
You will be issued a new multistate license and the former is inactivated. You must notify the board of nursing in the former residency state that you have moved out of state. Proof of residency may be required.
Let's say that Mary is a licensed RN who has primary residence in Colorado. However, she lives near the four corners (Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado). Since all of these states are participants, through the compact Mary can drive across these borders to practice, or practice electronically, without additional applications or fees.
Mary decides later to move her primary residence to New Mexico. She now has a 30-day grace period to practice on the same license. By the end of the 30 days, Mary will need to have received her new multistate license. Mary would be wise to apply in advance of the move.
I hope this clarifies it for you.
