Finally some good news for Florida Nurse Practitioners! Starting on January 19th, 2018, Florida RN’s will be able to convert their licenses to a multi-state license. This means we will be able to join the Nurse Licensure Compact. As a result, we will be able to acquire quicker licensing endorsements when applying in the other 25 states that are part of the Nurse Licensure Compact. Some of these states include: Texas, North Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, Missouri, and Utah. Although we may use our RN Florida license in these other states, we will still need to obtain new ARNP licenses. However, the wait time will be cut in half since we won’t have to wait for 2 licenses to be processed.
