On Thursday, June 6, 2019,  ANA-MI president Carole Stacy testified in the House Health Policy Committee in support of the legislation that would join Michigan with 33 other states to be part of the enhanced nursing licensure compact.

Shortly after her testimony, the legislation was favorably passed out of committee on a party-line vote. The bill now heads to the House Ways and Means Committee for consideration before hopefully heading to the House floor. State Representative Mary Whiteford championed this, and we are so grateful for her dedication, as well as the support from the other representatives.

What is the Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact?
“The Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) increases access to care, protects patient safety and reduces costs while supporting state-of-the-art health care delivery – for today and in the future. The NLC allows for registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPN/VNs) to have one multistate license, with the privilege to practice in their home state and other NLC states without obtaining additional licenses.”
