Reference: New Database Tracks Occupational Licensing Regulations Around the United States
The Center for the Study of Occupational Regulation (CSOR) at St. Francis University launched a national database on Thursday that will document and track the occupational licensing regulations of thousands of professions across the nation.
The database, which is free and now open to the public, has collected regulatory information that effects multiple medical professionals including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, massage therapists and physical therapists, among many others.
The center said estimates suggest that about 22 percent of United States workers are directly impacted by occupational licensing regulation.
