Emergency Reciprocal Licensing Professions and Procedures

As part of our response to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) will be relaxing regulatory enforcement for certain medical professional licensing by issuing temporary (90 day) licenses. Professionals who wish to continue to practice beyond the expiration date of the emergency license must fulfill all qualifications and requirements under the regulations for their profession. Click here for the Emergency 90-day application. NOTE: Application versions dated prior to 08/24/2020 will no longer be accepted.  Effective 08/24/2020 the Department is no longer accepting the 8 hour AHCA online training class as a way to obtain the Emergency 90 day temporary Nursing Assistant license. For questions, please email doh.elicense@health.ri.gov.

This emergency policy will include the following license types:

  • Practical Nurse
  • Registered Nurse
  • APRN
  • Nursing Assistant
  • Emergency Medical Responder
  • Emergency Medical Technician
  • Paramedic

IMPORTANT 90 DAY EMERGENCY LICENSE RENEWAL INFORMATION

RIDOH would like to thank all those health professionals who have helped Rhode Islanders during the COVID 19 pandemic. After careful review only licensees that are directly treating patients with COVID 19 will be eligible to renew their 90 day emergency license. Those license types are Nursing Assistants, APRN, Registered Nurse, Practical Nurse, Dietitian/Nutritionist, Emergency Medical Technician, Emergency Medical Responder and Paramedic.

If you are providing telehealth services to a patient who lives in Rhode Island and you wish to continue providing treatment you must apply for a full Rhode Island license or the patient must obtain treatment from a provider who holds an active Rhode Island license.
