Kentucky Licensure & Registration Info

The Kentucky State Board of Nursing licenses registered nurses and practical nurses. Kentucky is a Nurse Licensure Compact (Compact) state, meaning that nurses licensed by another Compact state do not need to apply for licensure unless they plan to make Kentucky their primary state of residency.
