Every healthcare practitioner, including Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, and their Assistants, needs a professional license in order to practice their profession in any state. Each state has a Licensing Board that oversees the licensing of their rehabilitation professionals.
As a New Graduate, you will need to pick one state for your initial license application. After you have successfully passed your boards and been licensed in that state, you can use those credentials to apply for licenses in other states, as well. Each state has a similar licensing application process, however, each state also has differences in background checks and other requirements for licensure.
You can find the information that you need to become licensed in ANY state by following these links.
