Licensure Options for Evacuees from Puerto Rico

Posted in Latest News on October 30, 2017.

All applicants will need to submit an application for licensure via examination or endorsement. Temporary permits are only available to applicants within six months of their graduation date. Please note that even if you hold an active license in Puerto Rico, if you have not passed the National Physical Therapy Exam, you will be required to apply via examination.

Official transcripts are required for confirmation of education. In the event you cannot retrieve your transcripts, please contact the board office at info@floridasphysicaltherapy.gov for your options.

If you hold a license in Puerto Rico, a licensure verification will be required. An option to assist applicants that cannot provide a licensure verification may be available. The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) holds records of all physical therapists and physical therapist assistant licenses if, the state or territory submits this information on behalf of the licensee. Board Staff will make all efforts to confirm licensure.
