Professional Licensure

Professional Licensure has traditionally been a state level process designed to protect the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens. The practice of medicine is considered a "states rights" issue. Each state maintains its own regulations on medical practice, whether for a physician, nurse, pharmacist or allied health professional.

Cytotechnologists must be licensed in some states in the United States in order to practice Cytotechnology. Contact state regulatory agencies for specific state information.

Higher purpose. Greater good.
