Thread: Nurse Compact in Alaska's Future?

    Nurse Compact in Alaska's Future?

    Hi, all!

    I am wondering if anyone can tell me if Alaska has made any solid moves toward becoming a Nurse Compact state for RN's & LPN's? My internet search has yielded minimal results on this.

    It seems I see that Alaska is not currently a compact state, but that it has at least entertained the idea. I would like this, as I have a child and four grandchildren in Alaska, and would like to visit for extended periods and work as a traveler if at all possible.

    MO and IL have talked about the same thing. Only problem is, what about the states that require CEU's?

    If you are compacted, you are still responsible for each states required CEUs. My home state is AR, I am licensed also in FL and CA. I am required to have Florida's CEUs in domestic violence and HIV and whatever is the other one I cannot remember! If I want to work in another compact state, then it is my responsibility to check and see what they require and also when it is required (like before I work there or before a certain amount of time passes).
