About the VALOR Act
According to the Veterans’ Access, Livelihood, Opportunity and Resources (VALOR) Act, the Boards of Registration and Certification within Health Professions Licensure will:
- Accept relevant education, training, and service completed by a license applicant as a member of the armed forces or the military reserves toward the qualifications required for licensure. See General Law, Chapter 112, Section 1B(b).
- Keep the license of a member of the armed forces who is on active duty valid until released from active duty, and for 90 days thereafter. See General Law, Chapter 112, Section 1B(c).
- Expedite the licensure process for military spouses who are licensed in other states and have left employment there to accompany a spouse relocated to the Commonwealth due to a military transfer. See General Law, Chapter 112, Section 1B(d).
