The New York State Education Department unveiled its efforts to make the licensing application process as easy and straightforward for the public as possible: taking the process online. For the first time, nursing and occupational therapy students will be able to submit their initial applications, as well as pay application fees, entirely from the comfort of their own homes. This will save applicants, on average, two weeks of mail and processing time, as well as improving the overall accuracy of the data capture.
