As of November 2021, emergency and temporary licensure requirements have loosened for a number of our facility partners due to increased staff needs.
If you are interested in a job that you may not have a state license for but have a temporary or emergency license in that state, please see the instructions below:
- Go to your Profile
- Navigate to Credentials
- Upload your license to the Licenses section
While some states are allowing nurses to practice with a temporary emergency license, there are requirements that may restrict your ability to apply for certain assignments. See below:
Temporary licenses are only accepted if you will be licensed to practice in the state for the entire duration of your assignment. However, many of these emergency licenses are only permitted for 30 days and most of our assignments are for 8-13 weeks, so you would not be eligible to apply.
If the entire assignment length will occur prior to the expiration date of your emergency license, the decision to accept these emergency licenses is facility-dependent and you may not be eligible for some jobs.
If your temporary or emergency license meets the above criteria, please submit your application and a Nomad Navigator will be in touch with your eligibility status.
