Licensing/Certifications/Resources

The key to a travel health care position is having the required licensure at the time of submission. Many positions will allow for submissions pending licensure but most require license in hand. Please see below for a list of all nursing and therapy state boards for specific state requirements. ACES will reimburse for any new state licensures once assignment has been accepted and completed in that state.

 

Walk-Through States

Walk-through states allow a professional to be issued a temporary license or permit within a very short period of time. This license can be used to practice nursing while awaiting the permanent license to be processed. Temporary permits are generally valid for 30 days to 6 months depending on the state of issue.

 

Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC) States

The Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact allows any nurse who resides in one of the 27 participating compact states to practice nursing in any of the states forming the compact state alliance. In order to work in a compact state, a nurse must have proof of residence in a compact state as well as a current, active RN license in said state. The nurse does not need to obtain licensure in any of the other participating compact states. For detailed information about the eNLC, https://ncsbn.org/enhanced-nlc-implementation.htm click here.
