Professional Licensing Guides

The Professional Licensing Guides were created to help you understand all of the steps required to earn a state professional license or credential to return to the full practice of your regulated profession.

Many thousands of skilled immigrants have interrupted careers as doctors, engineers, teachers and other regulated professions to resettle in the U.S. If you are one of these professionals, Upwardly Global’s Professional Licensing Guides can help you understand all of the necessary steps to continue your career. The Guides can also help you decide if other related careers are a better choice based on your resources and preferences.

Licensing information is now available for 10 popular careers in California, Illinois, Michigan and New York – with New Hampshire a new addition in healthcare guides. To get started, please select the state where you intend to become licensed or read How to Use the Guides.
