SEPTEMBER 10, 2015 STAKEHOLDERS MEETING – DISCUSSION OF REVISED NURSE LICENSURE COMPACT
Kentucky became a member of the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) when it was adopted by the General Assembly in 2006. On May 4, 2015, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) adopted a revised Nurse Licensure Compact which is intended to replace the previous NLC. The Kentucky Board of Nursing (KBN) will obtain a sponsor and seek to introduce the revised NLC in the 2016 Session of the General Assembly. To read the revised NLC, please go to this link: https://www.ncsbn.org/NLC_Final_050415.pdf.
In an effort to educate and inform licensees and other interested parties about the provisions of the revised NLC, KBN has scheduled a meeting to be held at Indiana Wesleyan University, Louisville Education and Conference Center, 1500 Alliant Drive, Louisville, Kentucky, on September 10, 2015 from 10 am – 12:00 pm (ET). Should interested parties be unable to attend the meeting in person, arrangements for telephone conference call-in and/or viewing a live webcast are being made and will be placed here by August 21, 2015.
