NCMB creates temp license for new PA grads

NCMB has issued an order to allow new physician assistant (PA) graduates who have not been able to complete the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination(PANCE) to receive a temporary license, in recognition of the fact that testing has ceased during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Temporary licenses will be valid for up to six months and will allow a PA to practice under the supervision of an on-site physician.
