Governor Murphy Signs Multi-State Nurse Licensing Act

The Act requires that the nurse secure a “multi-state license” from their home state before they can commence work in the state of another party to the Act. Nurses who secure a multi-state license from other states which are party to the act may now work in NJ. For more, contact Romanowsky Law today. (973)...
