Louisiana is a Compact State

Louisiana is a member of the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC). The NLC allows a registered nurse licensed in a Compact state to practice across state lines in another Compact state without having to obtain a license in another state. If you currently hold a Louisiana state nursing license for single-state practice, you can convert it to a multi-state license.
