Licensure

In Pennsylvania, a graduate nurse may begin their employment after completing their education if they obtain either a Temporary Practice Permit or complete and pass the NCLEX. Please contact your nursing program for information about obtaining a Temporary Practice Permit and registering for the NCLEX exam.

UPMC policy states, “The GN must provide the original state issued Temporary Practice Permit (TPP) letter or the display portion of the RN license, on the first day of orientation to Human Resources or the designated department.”

It is important that you complete the licensing process as soon as possible to begin employment at Children’ Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
