The EMS Compact requires all member states to expedite the processing of licensure applications submitted by veterans, active military service members, and members of the National Guard and Reserves separating from an active duty tour, and their spouses.
The REPLICA legislation provision applies to "a veteran, active military service member, and member of the National Guard and Reserves separating from an active duty tour, and a their spouse" (REPLICA Section 7. A).
To request expedited processing, qualified individuals must "hold a current valid and unrestricted National Registry certification at or above the level of the state license being sought as satisfying the minimum training and examination requirements for such licensure" (REPLICA Section 7. A).
