Ask a Travel Nurse Question:
I have a compact state RN license (KY). I am an ER traveling nurse. I am interested in work in Illinois and Georgia, because of family. I have heard both are going to become compact states soon. Do you have any info concerning this?
Ask a Travel Nurse Answer:
While I have seen some info on this, there is one thing that I have learned as a traveler and that is to never get board information from anyone other than the board itself. While states may have entered into compact licensure, is that already in effect? Or, when does it take effect? Is it the same process as other compact licensure? Are the requirements for licensure the same as other states? All of these questions need to be asked and only asked of the board itself. Even when I have my recruiter give me board information about upcoming assignments, I ALWAYS check with the board itself.
Hope this helps.
