Licensure portability is a challenge for the profession of occupational therapy. Currently, practitioners must apply for a new license each time they want to practice in another state which costs time, money, and often unnecessary hassle. In 2019, members from the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT), and the Council of State Governments (CSG) announced that they would collaborate to support the development of an interstate licensure compact for occupational therapy. Similar to a driver’s license, this compact will allow practitioners to practice in multiple states without having to secure a new license in each state.
