OPPAGA Memorandum Regarding the 2015 Nurse Licensure Compact Revisions

Posted almost 3 years ago by Mary Anne Koeppel

A Tallahassee Area CAPN Member has alerted us to the information below, current as of December 8, 2015.

The Florida Legislature's Office of Program Policy Analysis & Government Accountability (OPPAGA) has released a research memorandum regarding the 2015 Nurse Licensure Compact revisions. OPPAGA evaluated the revisions and was directed by the Legislature to answer the following four questions:

  • What is the Nurse Licensure Compact and what revisions did the National Council of State Boards of Nursing make to the compact in May 2015?

  • How does the revised compact address barriers and disadvantages identified in the 2006 OPPAGA report?

  • How does the revised compact affect benefits identified in the 2006 OPPAGA report?

  • What options are available if the Legislature is interested in participating in the Nurse Licensure Compact?
