Locum tenens careers open a wide variety of opportunities for advanced practitioners. From increased work-life balance to expanding clinical experience, locum tenens can be a great way to explore different healthcare settings and communities. One of the unique aspects of locum tenens jobs is the flexibility it offers. You have the freedom to travel and work in a variety of practice settings across the country, or you can choose to work closer to home, perhaps just a state away. Whatever you choose, locum tenens careers enable you to tailor your career to fit your personal and professional goals.

When working as a locum tenens, it's important to understand that state-specific APRN licensure requirements vary state by state. This means being aware of the fees, application processes, and documentation necessary for each state you wish to practice in is crucial.

To make finding all of the necessary information and overall process easier, we have compiled a comprehensive list of every nursing board and licensing authority in the United States. For each state, we've provided contact information, the average time to obtain APRN licensure, fees, and additional APRN license information.
