Have you ever considered getting a new license and traveling to a state you have never been to before? It is time to make it happen! Barton Associates has a dedicated licensing and credentialing team that will help you get a new license and will even pay for it. All you need to do is show up and work!

Each state has a different license process, and therefore license timeframes can vary from state to state. Due to COVID-19, some states are now offering temporary emergency licensure that can be issued within a matter of days. However, applying for full, permanent licensure will often take a bit longer. Below you will find a list of some of the fastest states to obtain a permanent, NP license:

5. Vermont

Time frame: 4-8 weeks

Important Details:

  • There are no fingerprint requirements.
  • National certification is required.

4. Kansas

Time frame: 4-6 weeks

Important Details:

  • Fingerprints are required.
  • National certification is not required.
  • Temporary licensure is available on a case-by-case basis.
