Is Illinois a compact state?
The Nursing Licensure Compact (NLC) allows licensed nurses around the U.S. to work in other states that take part in the compact with just one license, called a multistate license. As of September 2022 Illinois is pending for a compact state. Check this website for current information. See more here https://nursejournal.org/resources/nursing-compact-states/
