Urgent need for medical professionals

The state of Illinois is calling on physicians, nurses, physicians’ assistants, and respiratory therapists who left the healthcare field to reactivate their professional licenses and join the effort to save lives during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The state is streamlining the process for healthcare professionals who have retired or recently left the profession to reactive their licenses by:

  • Waving fees and expediting licensure for healthcare positions
  • Automatically extending licenses soon to expire
  • Making it easier for out-of-state healthcare professionals to practice here, that way border communities can deploy physicians where they are needed most

Reinstate your license:
