Depending on the state, this process could take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. The requirements vary from state to state, so be sure to check with the particular state’s guidelines. The good news is, the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) has been working toward a physical therapy licensure compact, which would allow PTs and PTAs to practice in any participating state without having to obtain a new license.
