Proposed Regulation – Board of Nursing

​ ​​​

NEWARK – The Board of Nursing has proposed amendments and new rules to implement P.L. 2019, c. 172, which entered New Jersey into the Nurse Licensure Compact. 

The Compact is an agreement between states in which nurses licensed in one member state may work in another member state without obtaining a license.  In order to work pursuant to the Compact, a nurse would have to obtain a license with multistate privileges from his or her home state, which must be the nurse’s primary state of residence.  The proposed amendments and new rules establish the procedures for applying for licenses with multistate privileges.

The proposed amendments and new rules, and information on how to submit a comment by June 19, 2020, can be viewed here.
