What’s Your Status?

If you are an unassigned candidate or are deferring assignment, you will need to inform us whether or not you wish to be considered for an assignment in the future. We do not assume that you remain available. You need to update your status on a semi‐annual basis using the Category Update Form until you are permanently assigned or until you declare that you do not wish to be considered for future assignments. See descriptions and policies related to your status as well as information regarding the recertification policy.

Submitting the Form

You will want to consider these questions related to licensure when updating your candidate information:
