How to Get Your Rhode Island License

Occupational therapy licensing falls under the responsibility of the Rhode Island Department of Health, which can take four to six weeks to process applications. OTs in the state earn an above average salary. Rhode Island is a little more expensive than other parts of the country when it comes to basic costs like housing, utilities and food.

 

Physicial Therapy licensing falls under the Rhode Island Department of Health and takes up to 60 days to process applications for PT licenses. Rhode Island offers an average PT salary that's slightly lower than the national average. While the state does have a higher cost of living than the country's average, much of that is due to higher home costs, which is not something travel PTs must contend with.
