Licensing

Department Functions:

The Licensing Department is responsible for licensing and registering KSBHA’s healthcare professionals. The Licensing Administrator and her staff, perform all license processing, maintenance, and verifications for more than 28,000+ licensees.  Once all information for a license application is received, licensure takes, on the average, less than a week unless there is a ‘red flag’.   Each profession has a specific renewal period during the calendar year.  The renewal period lasts for 6 weeks and is followed by a month-long ‘late’ renewal period.  If providers don’t renew within the 10 week renewal period, their license is cancelled. In order to practice again, they must go through the re-instatement process.
