    hi, multi state license means you can practice in multi states without getting the license for that state. You would need to look on the tn board of nursing web site to find out which states that include.

    Here's some info for you:
    "The Nurse Licensure Compact was enacted by the Tennessee General Assembly in 2002. The following states have joined in this new mutual recognition model of multistate nursing regulation: Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.

The following questions and answers provide information about the Nurse Licensure Compact and how it will affect hiring nurses from other compact states (party states) that have enacted the Compact."
