The Wisconsin Hospital Association has taken the lead on getting the eNLC legislation drafted and others–including WNA–will be asking legislators for support.
You may have received an email from the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS). DSPS is the state agency that issues your nursing license and where the Wisconsin Board of Nursing receives its support and services. That DSPS email contains information regarding the newer version of the Nurse Licensure Compact. This newer compact, eNLC, has proponents wanting the legislature to adopt the new version. You may recall that on May 23 and 25 WNA sponsored two “rapid response calls” for members to provide input on the eNLC. We used your responses in preparing the testimony that was presented to the Wisconsin Board of Nursing public hearing on June 9.
WNA will keep you informed of the progress of this initiative.
