TERMINATION OF TEMPORARY EMERGENCY RECIPROCITY LICENSURE (TERL) PROGRAM
EFFECTIVE DATE: March 31, 2023
This notice is to advise that the Division of Consumer Affairs (the "Division") has discontinued the Temporary Emergency Reciprocity Licensure Program with the sole exception of respiratory care therapists (please see below). This notice supersedes all prior notices that have been posted to the Division's website or communicated to you in prior emails.
INFORMATION FOR RESPIRATORY CARE THERAPISTS SUPERSEDING ALL PRIOR NOTICES
EFFECTIVE DATE: October 18, 2023
Please be advised that the Temporary Reciprocity Licensure (TERL) program for respiratory care therapists will remain in place, without change, through December 31, 2023, or until the end of New Jersey’s State of Emergency if that occurs prior to December 31, 2023.
Respiratory care therapists currently holding a TERL will remain authorized to practice in New Jersey under the TERL through December, 2023.
The Division urges respiratory care therapists who wish to continue providing respiratory care services in New Jersey after December 31, 2023 to file an application for a plenary license in New Jersey as soon as possible to avoid any gap between the expiration of the TERL and the State Board of Respiratory Care’s decision regarding their application for a plenary license.
