The credentialing process is typically between 60-90 days from the date the application is submitted.
Applications for credentialing are required by providers requesting clinical privileges and/or medical staff membership. These include (but are not limited to) physicians and advanced practice professionals (NPs, PAs, CRNAs, and CNMs).
Primary source verifications (PSVs) are documents and credentials verified by the actual source or an approved agent of that source.
Some providers may work under expedited or temporary privileges while their credentialing application is still in process. However, this depends on the hospital’s policies and whether their Bylaws permit such.
This depends on the hospital’s credentialing policy. While some may appreciate a head start on the credentialing application while the license is in process, others may prefer not to start on credentialing until the license is obtained.
Work history gaps are common. For example, some providers have family obligations, or experience delays between positions due to relocation. Just be sure to document this on your CV.
The DEA mandates that a provider must have a separate registration for each state in which they practice. However, if you are relocating and no longer plan to practice in your original state, you may change the address on your current DEA to the new state where you will be practicing.
