3 Tips for a Smoother Licensing and Credentialing Process
When you work locum tenens, you know you need to meet licensing and credentialing requirements for each new assignment. But does paperwork get you down? If licensing and credentialing is taking away from the reasons you love your job and giving you a huge headache, we can help.
Consider the following three licensing and credentialing tips for locum tenens clinicians. They might seem simple, but practicing them can help save time and eliminate the hassle.
1. Carve Out Time to Get (and Stay) Organized
Every state has a unique licensure process, and credentialing requirements vary from site to site. However, you can give yourself a tremendous head start and save time with every assignment by committing to some regular organizational housekeeping. This includes:
Keeping your CV and some critical documents updated. (Clickherefor a list of common documents requested during the licensing and credentialing processes, as well as what to include in your CV.) Having complete contact information (personal phone number, email, home address, etc.) for professional references that are prepared to respond. Being up to date on your vaccinations and able to provide documentation. Giving yourself plenty of time to achieve licensure. Paying attention to licensing/credentialing application deadlines, and meeting any deadlines given throughout the process.
2. Be Thorough and Transparent
The licensing and credentialing process is always easier when you provide accurate information. That sounds obvious, but bear in mind that even small discrepancies between your CV and application can delay licensing and privileges from being issued. Be thorough in your reviewsome state boards and facilities will void licensing/credentialing applications that miss deadlines or contain errors. Also, provide any legal documentation in regards to personal and/or professional legal matters.
