WHA Resource Spotlight: WHA Resources Available on Act 10 Interstate Licensure Application
The Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS) has implemented 2021 Act 10 provisions that permanently enable health care professionals licensed in another state to immediately start practice in Wisconsin while they seek approval of their regular license. The Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) developed and advocated for the licensure provision on behalf of its members to help streamline Wisconsin’s health care professional licensure application process.
As permanently provided by 2021 Act 10, health care professionals may immediately begin practice in Wisconsin pending approval of their regular license by submitting an attestation to DSPS from the professional and his or her employer that the professional has a license in good standing in another state and has no active investigations or restrictions.
WHA has additional information about utilizing the 2021 Act 10 process to immediately begin practice in Wisconsin on its website with a member login. A recording of the May 5 WHA webinar on the 2021 Act 10 licensure reform is available here
