The Biggest Benefit  

A huge benefit to becoming a nurse in Utah is that it is a nurse licensure compact state, which allows licensed nurses to practice in multiple states, saving them from having to apply for licensure to work in another state.

 To be eligible for a Utah Compact License, a nurse must:

  1. Reside in Utah as his/her legal residence.
  2. Hold an active RN/LVN license without current disciplinary action.
  3. Declare Utah as his/her primary state of residence.
  4. Meet Utah licensure requirements.
