States are invoking new measures to ensure a health workforce is available to meet increased demands due to the coronavirus outbreak. As of March 18, at least 48 states have declared official states of emergency in some capacity. Some of those orders include provisions authorizing or directing state Departments of Health or State Nursing Licensure Boards to consider emergency licensing of volunteer, retired, inactive or out-of-state professionals including nurse practitioners. Eighteen states had enacted the Uniform Emergency Volunteer Health Practitioners Act, a model state law designed for health emergencies. At least 14 states called for additional specific, new response strategies in their executive orders for telehealth, out-of-state personnel and retired or temporary licensure provisions for the nursing workforce.
