For example, the NCPC did not require applicants to submit to criminal background checks based on national and federal fingerprints, while the new eNLC does. Originally developed in 2000, the license had grown to 25 states by 2015. In order to streamline the process for nurses, the Enhanced Nursing Licensure Compact (eNLC) was implemented in 2018 and contained licensing standards that were missing from the initially compact license. The eNLC went into effect on July 20, 2017, allowing the Interstate Commission of Nurse Licensure Compact Administration to begin developing appropriate rules and rules for the new license. Twenty-four of the NCPC originating States have adopted the eNLC or have pending legislation. Six other states and Guam have outstanding laws waiting to be approved before joining the eNLC. As of August 19, 2020, there are currently thirty-four states that are part of the eNLC. New Jersey with partial implementation as described below. What does this mean for nurses? Nurses currently practicing in states with pending laws have nothing to do until the laws are passed. As soon as the state becomes a member of the eNLC, the state board of directors will address all nurses registered with the state. Nurses must then ensure that their permanent address with the state board of directors is up to date in order to determine the right to obtain a compact license.

While some states are reluctant to adopt eNLC, according to the NCSBN, there are more than 2 million nurses currently living in eNLC states and have the opportunity to practice in other compact states. Nurses with compact licenses are more desirable, as they can immediately accept vacancies without waiting for admission. The NCSBN also points out that nurses with a compact NRC license can support states that express interest in establishing ARNC adoption programs in accordance with the Nuclear Act of 1954 as amended. Section 274 of the Act provides a legal basis in which NRC hands over part of its regulatory authority to states in order to grant and regulate by-products (radioisotope); raw materials (uranium and thorium); and certain quantities of special nuclear material. . . .
