To meet the expected rise in demand for health care practitioners as our healthcare system engages in the fight against COVID-19, we are calling on retired health care professionals like you to return to practice immediately to assist in the effort. Whether you can provide services in-person or via telehealth, your assistance is needed to bolster our health care system wherever you choose to practice. Please

The Division of Consumer Affairs is now allowing you to reactivate your professional license temporarily on an emergency basis, waiving all fees and most requirements. We are calling on eligible health care professionals whose licenses have been inactive for five years or less to immediately reinstate their license for the period of the current state of emergency.

Once reactivated, these licenses will remain active for the duration of the state of emergency declared by Governor Phil Murphy on March 9, 2020, inExecutive Order 103.
Once your license has been reinstated, please sign up for the
New Jersey Medical Reserve Corps. You can also find additional ways to contribute to the effort on the New Jersey healthcare
volunteer portal. By providing details about your interest, skills, and availability you are not committing to deployment. You are enabling the State to match your skills with areas that need them most. The Department of Health will reach out with more details if your skillset can help us in our response to COVID-19.
