Illinois Proclamation for Out-of-State Nurses, 20 March 2020
On March 20, 2020, the Governor of the State of Illinois issued a proclamation declaring that the requirements for permanent licensure of physicians, nurses, physician assistants and respiratory care therapists are temporarily suspended. All physicians, nurses, physician assistants and respiratory care therapists who are licensed in another state and are in good standing are authorized to work under the direction of IEMA and IDPH in response to the public health emergency declared by the Governor. This allows nurses with licenses from other states to practice immediately in Illinois. Licensees are limited to working under the direction of IEMA and IDPH pursuant to a declared disaster or in a state licensed long-tenn care facility, state regulated hospital, or federally qualified health center (FQHC). Licensees are limited to providing treatment in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. This is in effect until September 30, 2020. Read the full Illinois proclamation here >
Great State for Travel Nursing – Illinois
Whether you’re in the great city of Chicago, somewhere along the Mississippi River, or anywhere in between, summertime in Illinois will provide you with plenty to do!
The city of Chicago comes alive during the summer months. Locals and tourists alike flock to Navy Pier, a 3,300 foot long pier on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. The variety of things to do on the pier stretches in every direction. Everything from shopping and dining, to a botanical garden and theater can be found on the pier – there is literally something for everyone. Another fun thing to do in the city is to kayak through the canyons of the skyscrapers and architectural wonders that line the Chicago River. Kayak Chicago is Chicago’s premier full-service outfitter, offering a variety of tours with certified instructors and guides. It’s a truly unique way to experience the urban landscape.
On the opposite side of Illinois, the Mississippi River provides a beautiful and calming landscape for people who aren’t interested in big city life. At 8,000 acres, Pere Marquette State Park is the largest state park in Illinois. There are numerous wooded trails for hiking, scenic bluffs to bike along, great spots for fishing, and paths for horseback riding.
Central Illinois may seem like vast plains of nothing, but in the summertime, its smaller cities and local culture come alive. The Constitution Trail in Bloomington is one of the most extensive multi-use trails in Illinois. The trail is open to walkers, runners, in-line skaters, skateboarders, cyclists, wheelchair users and other non-motorized forms of transportation. With more than 37 miles of hard surface, the Constitution Trail is routinely cited as the one of the best park facilities in the state. The Bloomington area also has many wineries, nature centers, and even has its own zoo! Some of the best golf courses in the state are located in this middle region. Medinah, Oak Brook, and Marshall are home to 3 of the top 5 in the state, and are sure to give even the best golfers a challenge.
