Licensing Made Easy

With the introduction of the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC) and the Nursing Licensure Compact (NLC), you may be eligible for multiple state licenses in only a matter of a few weeks. Currently, 24 states participate in the IMLC and several more states are in the review process of entering the bill into their state.

Eighty percent of physicians meet the requirements of licensure through the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact. To begin the process, you will be required to complete an online application, pay a non-refundable $700 application fee, obtain fingerprints and complete a national criminal background check. You will be notified via email if you qualify for licensure through the IMLC.

Nurses also have access to expedited licensing through the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC). The Nurse Licensure Compact provides nurses with the ability to quickly provide care to patients across the country. Through the NLC, nurses will be able to travel for disaster relief situations without having the burden of waiting for state licenses to be issued as well as allowing nurses to practice in person or provide telehealth services. In turn, this will assist in alleviating the cost of obtaining several state licenses. Similar to the IMLC, the NLC has a set of requirements that need to be met in order for nurses to qualify for licensure through the Nurse Licensure Compact.
