Multi-State Licensure & Certification for School Nurses

The Professional Educator Standards Board recently filed rules allowing for acceptance of all valid RN licenses to meet the requirements for ESA certification for school nurse, including valid Multistate Licenses (MSL).  This policy is effective immediately.

Washington state recently joined the Nursing Licensure Compact, meaning that holders of valid multistate licenses can practice in the state without needing to obtain an additional license.

For questions related to this policy change, please contact the Educator Credentialing Program Manager, Michael Nguyen.
