Temporary practice permits for applicants credentialed out-of-state.

(1) An applicant who is currently or was previously credentialed in another state or jurisdiction may qualify for licensure in Washington state. Applicants must submit the following documentation to be considered for a temporary practice permit:
(a) A completed application on forms provided by the department with the request for a temporary practice permit indicated;
(b) An application fee and a temporary practice permit fee as specified in WAC 246-928-990;
(c) Written verification directly from all states or jurisdictions in which the applicant is or was licensed, attesting that the applicant has or had a license in good standing and is not subject to charges or disciplinary action for unprofessional conduct or impairment; and
(d) Verification of completion of the required education and examination as specified in WAC 246-928-520.
(2) The department shall issue a one-time-only temporary practice permit unless the department determines a basis for denial of the license or issuance of a conditional license.
(3) The temporary permit shall expire upon the issuance of a license by the department, or within 90 days, whichever occurs first. The permit shall not be extended beyond the expiration date.
(4) Issuance of a temporary practice permit does not ensure that the department will grant a full license. Temporary permit holders are subject to the same education and examination requirements as set forth in WAC 246-928-520 and 246-928-550.
(5) The following situations are not considered substantially equal for Washington state licensure:
(a) Certification of persons credentialed out-of-state through a state-constructed examination; or
(b) Legacy provisions where proof of education and examination was not required.
