The Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) goes into effect in Florida on January 19, 2018. The compact includes Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses. At that time, revised applications will be available for licensure to align Florida’s requirements to those of the NLC for the issuance of Multi-State Licenses (MSL). Individuals who submit an application before January 19 will need to complete a separate “upgrade” application on or after January 19 if they want to be evaluated for a MSL. The fee for the MSL application is $100.00. For further information about the compact please see the Frequently Asked Questions
