There is a split that is occurring the Nursing Compact Licensing world. There would appear to be 4 legacy states that include: New Mexico, Colorado, Wisconsin, and Rhode Island.
Beginning January 18, 2018 these states will not recognize multi-state licenses from any state except the 4 that are listed. The opposite is also true. If, for example, a nurse holds a multi-state compact license in Texas, that nurse’s license will not be recognized by New Mexico. These nurses must obtain a single state license in the state in which they are working if the compact license isn’t in through “group.”
