Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed SB 115, which authorizes Pennsylvania to join the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC). To date, 34 states are part of the NLC, which recognizes mutual agreement in the requirements of the professional licensure of nurses and reciprocity of license transfer between member states. In 2016, Gov. Wolf signed Act 112 into law which authorized the Commonwealth to join the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC). Like the NLC, the IMLC recognizes mutual agreement in the requirements for physician licensing and provides the benefit of easier transfer of licenses from states within the compact.
