RNs & LPNs: South Dakota is a member of the Nurse Licensure Compact.  To view a current list of Nurse Licensure Compact member states, please see National Council of State Boards of Nursing. If your primary state of residence (where you vote, pay taxes, and/or hold a driver’s license) is no longer South Dakota, and

  • your new primary state of residence is another Compact State and your nursing license has not been disciplined, you may practice nursing in that state for up to 30 days on your South Dakota nursing license on your “Multi-State” practice privilege, while processing your new nursing license in that state; then you must inactivate your South Dakota nursing license.
  • your new primary state of residence is not another Compact State, you must return your South Dakota nursing license to the South Dakota Board of Nursing to be marked “Single State”.  You may not practice nursing in a Non-Compact State on your South Dakota nursing license.
