HHS Announces New Nurse License Regulations

As a team, TaleMed is monitoring the ever-evolving response from national and state leaders as we work with our healthcare facilities and healthcare professionals (HCPs) to combat the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The White House announced yesterday afternoon that the U.S. Health and Human Services Department (HHS) issued a new healthcare license regulation. This new regulation will allow medical professionals to practice across state lines to help hospitals with their COVID-19 efforts.

This directive will allow doctors and nurses to “help hospitals in adjoining areas,” according to Vice President Mike Pence.

We believe this is great news for hospitals, HCPs and patients across the country. Our entire TaleMed staff is dedicated to supporting and providing the best healthcare at all times.

Each state is implementing their process for emergency licenses, and your TaleMed recruiter will guide you through the steps necessary to get a license, if you need one, for your assignment. Here is a list with some details provided by the Federation of State Medical Boards.

“We support this HHS decision and are working with our HCPs to connect with hospitals that are in crisis situations,” says TaleMed Director of Operations Kristen Huff.
