Fingerprint-based background checks may cause a delay in licensing. Individuals who satisfy all other licensing requirements and qualifications may receive a temporary permit while the national background check is completed.

(a) Holds an unrestricted, active license in another state or jurisdiction that has substantially equivalent licensing standards for the same profession as those in Washington;
(b) Is not subject to denial of a license or issuance of a conditional or restricted license; and
(c) Does not have a criminal record in Washington.
(2) A temporary permit grants the individual the full scope of practice for the profession.
(3) A temporary practice permit will not be renewed, reissued, or extended. A temporary practice permit expires when any one of the following occurs:
(a) The license is granted;
(b) A notice of decision on application is mailed to the applicant, unless the notice of decision on application specifically extends the duration of the temporary practice permit; or
(c) One hundred eighty days after the temporary practice permit is issued.
(4) To receive a temporary practice permit, the applicant shall:
(a) Submit the necessary application, fee(s), and documentation for the license;
(b) Meet all requirements and qualifications for the license, except the results from a fingerprint-based national background check, if required;
(c) Provide verification of having an active unrestricted license in the same profession from another state that has substantially equivalent licensing standards for the profession in Washington; and
(d) Submit to the department the fingerprint card and a written request for a temporary practice permit when the department notifies the applicant the national background check is required.
