(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Herb Conaway, Jr., M.D., Cleopatra G. Tucker, Wayne P. DeAngelo, John S. Wisniewski and Celeste Riley to grant a temporary nursing license to the qualified spouse of an active duty member of the Armed Forces who has been relocated to New Jersey has been signed into law.
"Relocating is part of military life, but can make steady employment difficult," said Conaway (D-Burlington). "This law is consistent with legislative efforts being made in other states to make it easier for qualified military spouses to maintain their professional nursing licenses and pursue nursing employment options as they move from one jurisdiction to another."
