Perhaps you want to open an office in another state or maybe you want to provide therapy at a client's home and the client lives across state lines. There are many reasons to want to practice in multiple jurisdictions.
Practicing in another state may not even require obtaining a full license in that state. The Physical Therapy Compact (PT Compact) is an agreement between member states to improve access to physical therapy services for the public by increasing the mobility of eligible physical therapy providers to work in multiple states. For more information on the PT Compact, and to see if you are eligible to participate, visit www.ptcompact.org.
The process of applying for licensure in another state may vary, but the information below will help get you started.
Contact the licensing authority in the jurisdiction in which you want to practice for the most up-to-date information on licensure requirements.
You'll find state requirements in FSBPT's licensure reference guide, but confirm with your licensing authority to ensure you get the latest, most accurate information.
Use this FSBPT service to transfer your national physical therapy exam (NPTE®) score to another jurisdiction. Please note that your score is automatically reported to the jurisdiction through which you registered for the exam.
