NBRC Credentials

3/16/2011

The West Virginia Board of Respiratory Care no longer requires maintaining active credentials with the NBRC as a requirement for West Virginia license renewal. This does not impact requirements for issuance of an original license.
 
However, employers may have differing requirements in regards to maintaining active credentials with the NBRC based on specific job descriptions. The Board encourages all licensees to check with their employers in regards to this issue.
 
Further, other states may have differing licensure requirements regarding maintaining active credentials with the NBRC. Therefore, the WVBORC encourages all West Virginia licensees to consider their individual need for maintaining active credentials with the NBRC.
