How to apply for temporary practice permit for persons credentialed out-of-state.

This section explains how a person holding a license in another state or jurisdiction may apply for a temporary practice permit.
(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 three months, 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) Grandfathering provisions where proof of education and examination was not required.
