Q&A: Reporting State Licensure and Certification Actions

  1. How should an action taken against a nurse who is licensed in one state but authorized to practice in another state under the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) be reported to the NPDB?

    The Nurse Multi-State Privilege Adverse Action Classification Codes were developed to allow the reporting of actions taken against a nurse's privilege to practice under the NLC. The state that issues the license to practice (the nurse's home state or state of residency) should use the State Licensure Adverse Action Classification Codes to report an action it takes against the nurse's license. If the remote state (the state that did not issue the license) takes an action against the nurse's Multi-State Privilege to Practice, it should submit a separate report of that action using the Nurse Multi-State Privilege Adverse Action Classification Codes.
