Out of state license

Iam currently a licensed RDH in NJ and want to look into getting my license in CA & FL, but hear it’s the two hardest states to get it. Why is that? And what is required? Do I really have to take my written and clinical boards again? If so how the heck do I find a patient that is willing to travel? Sounds impossible..

California is not a part of WREB and have their own boards. I have heard rumors that those testing there that have come from other states have a hard time with their boards, not sure why. From what I understand, CA. is part of the national written boards though, just not the clinical.

I just went to California website and they state that as of 2003, RDH’s that have practiced for more than 5 years in another state, can be licensed through credentialing and not boards. 🙂

Florida website states that you need national written and board results either from florida or another jurisdiction. From all I am seeing, you won’t need to find a board patient again. 🙂

Due is right about getting listened through credentials after five years. You will still have to take the other nesseceriy classes though. So for example in California you would also have to have local, nitrous, and soft tissue curettage.

5 years correct with most states that have reciprocity NJ. I had to provide a letter from my local police dept, proving I had no record.

I went from MA to IL and licensure was based on credentials…if you took national boards and are working its just paperwork. ..
