The Physical Therapy Licensure Compact (PTLC) creates a new way for PTs and PTAs to practice or work in multiple states. In order to participate in the PTLC, states must opt in by adopting the PTLC through legislation. PTs and PTAs in participating states will have the option of obtaining a "compact privilege" to practice or work in another participating state if they meet certain criteria.
Currently 21 states have adopted the PTLC legislation: Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, and West Virginia.
