The APRN Compact is a Modern Licensure Solution for the 21st Century. As leaders in public protection, state boards of nursing developed and adopted the APRN Compact in 2020. The APRN Compact allows for advanced practice registered nurses to have one multistate license with the ability to practice in all compact states.
