Utah Licensure Information and Requirements
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:
- Fill out an online application
- Request verification — to include education and exam information — of at least one active license
- You may do this through Nursys® if the state your license is in participates.
- If your license is not in a Nursys® state, contact your Board of Nursing and have them submit a Verification of License form.
- Have a set of fingerprints and criminal background check completed.
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.
Nurse Licensure Compact Status
Utah has been a part of the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) since January 19th, 2018.
Is Utah a Walk-Through State?
No, Utah is not a walk-through state.
Utah CEU Requirements
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.
