The Miles Community College Nursing Program educates, trains and prepares students to take and pass the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) and enter the workforce ready to work and provide compassionate, safe, and competent care. Once the NCLEX exam is successfully passed, a graduate may be eligible to apply for licensure by endorsement in any of the 50 states.

Montana is one of 34 states who belong, via state legislative ruling, to the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC). If the state you are licensed in is a compact state, you can take your license and practice as a nurse in any other state that is a compact state without paying for a license in that state. "The NLC increases access to care while maintaining public protection at the state level. Under the NLC, nurses can practice in other NLC states, without having to obtain additional licenses." Information about the NLC and the participating states can be found at: When a student nurse graduates from Miles Community College and passes the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) in Montana, the Registered Nurse can legally work in Montana as a Registered Nurse as well as 33 other states, so long as they applied and met criteria for a multi-state license. The licensee must continually hold an unencumbered license in order to meet the requirements of the NLC.

Students who wish to practice in a state other than Montana will likely have additional licensing requirements to complete prior to practicing in a state outside of Montana. Nursing regulatory boards outline standards for safe nursing care and issue licenses to practice nursing. Prior to enrollment, students should review the lists below to determine whether this program meets the licensing requirements in a specific state. It is important to note that all states determine their own requirements. The NCLEX exam is a national test, so you also would not have to retest. Varying continuing education (CEU) hours may apply. See additional information available for nursing licensure from NCSBN Nurse Licensure Compact.

For specific state agencies offering nursing licensure, please see the professional licensure directory for nursing.
