For the most up-to-date information on licensure requirements and fees, visit the Utah Board of Nursing website or contact them at (801) 530-6628.
Utah has enacted the Nurse Licensure Compact, so you won’t need a state-specific license to work as a travel nurse there as long as you already have a multistate license (MSL) in another compact state. You may apply for licensure in Utah and work on the MSL for up to 90 days.
If your primary license is in a non-compact state, you must apply for licensure by endorsement. To complete this process:
Utah does not allow temporary licenses, so any travel nursing jobs you take in this state must be far enough out to allow you to submit all the required paperwork and wait for it to be approved.
The application fee for licensure by endorsement is $100, which includes fingerprinting and a background check.
Utah has been a part of the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) since January 19th, 2018.
No, Utah is not a walk-through state.
Utah nurses are required to complete 400 hours of licensed practice plus 15 hours of continuing education or 200 hours of licensed practice plus 30 hours of continuing education every two years.
The current average weekly travel nurse salary in Utah is $1,342. This is slightly below the national average, while the cost of living in Utah is a little higher than the national average. This may be something to consider if you’re thinking of taking a travel nursing job in this state.
But remember, travel nurses receive many benefits besides just their salaries. There are also things like housing stipends, travel and meal allowances, bonuses, and more.
