I am personally for the Nursing Licensure Compact because it helps remove obstacles that some nurse’s face depending on their career or specialty choice. One example of this would be a traveling nurse. Evans (2015), states that the purpose of establishing the compact was to address barriers to practice and create uniformity within nursing.

This review indicates that education on mandatory reporting and abuse needs to be required because many nurses have a limited knowledge on the topic. To reduce these barriers to reporting of suspicious cases of abuse and/or neglect, education should be mandatory for all future and current nurses. Many schools discuss content regarding abuse and neglect however it is not standardized for all schools and it does not discuss what to do when you suspect abuse or neglect. Limited information is known about the effect of mandatory reporting. It is necessary to continue research on this topic to determine the benefits of requiring education on mandatory reporting and the outcomes associated with it.

With that being said, it is crucial to stay up-to-date with the most current studies and research pertaining to the medical field, and nursing.
