IL nurses hope for more lenient licensing

Daily Herald, May 6, 2011

Two Illinois lawmakers led a group of nurses and medical professionals in Springfield urging Illinois to join a national group that would allow nurses to practice freely across state lines. Sen. Pam Althoff, a McHenry Republican, and Rep. Sandra Pihos, a Glen Ellyn Republican, said joining the Nurse Licensure Compact would allow nurses from Illinois and other states to offer care more easily in person or by remote technology to people across the border. There are currently 24 states in the compact, which waives the requirement to be licensed in individual states.
