Licensure

Limited Emergency License for Disasters and Emergencies

This process temporarily authorizes a medical professional not licensed in the state of North Carolina to practice medicine during a declared stated of emergency. There is no fee to submit this license application.

NOTE: If you currently hold an active NC license you DO NOT need to obtain a disaster license to volunteer as a medical responder in NC. If you already hold an active NC license, register with the American Red Cross to volunteer. Under no circumstances should medical professionals self-report to any disaster site to provide assistance, as this may interfere with official emergency response efforts.
