An applicant by examination who has never taken the national exam is eligible for a Temporary License.
Registration for the NPTE must be verifiable before a temporay license will be issued.
An applicant with a temporary PT or PTA license must have onsite supervision when providing physical therapy services by a PT licensed in Texas and working at the same location.
The supervising PT who signs the affidavit must work at the facility where the temporary licensee is working.
If the PT who signed your supervisory affidavit is unavailable, you may be temporarily supervised by a different PT without sending in a new affidavit.
If you have two jobs, you must have a supervisory affidavit on file with us showing that a PT at each job has agreed to be your supervising PT.
If you have one job, but work in more than one facility, you only need one supervising PT as long as that PT is also working in each facility.
If your supervising therapist is no longer working at the same facility, you need to submit a new supervisory affidavit.
