One of the benefits of traveling for Health Providers Choice is that we reimburse the full amount for your license. You must supply us with an accurate receipt for reimbursement, either a receipt with the state board seal or the cancelled check, and you must supply us with a copy of the license. You must maintain you license as current, active and in good-standing status prior to starting your contract, and during any work assignment.
Before you begin your assignment, we will need an update on the status of your license. You must have a current, valid license and current certificates (BLS, ACLS, etc.) in order to work. All this information will be kept in your file and must be complete prior to beginning any assignment. If you have any problems obtaining a license, please call us. We’ll be glad to help! Processing the license will vary from state to state and can take up to eight (8) weeks. To avoid delays, it is very important that you complete the application for endorsement immediately upon assignment consideration.
State law requires that you do not present yourself as a registered nurse (RN), graduate nurse, trained nurse or nurse anesthetist until you have the state license endorsement. This means you cannot use any title, sign, card, or device to indicate that you are qualified to practice nursing, unless you have been licensed or certified by endorsement in that particular state. For example, do not wear your name badge when you are turning in your application to the state licensing board in a state in which you are not licensed because you could be in violation of that state’s law.
NOTE: Health Providers Choice will reimburse you for the license and assist you, but you are ultimately responsible for all your licensing requirements and for maintaining all necessary licenses.
