Overview on licensure - RAHPC


What is Licensure?

Licensure is the act of granting a legal right to a qualified individual to practice Health Profession. The purpose of licensure is to protect the public from physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual harm by practitioners who are not sufficiently competent to practice within the profession. Licensure has the inherent property of instilling trust within the public that the licensee (Health Professional) is competent and has met the initial requirements for entry into practice as specified by a professional regulatory body.


In order to be licensed into health profession, the health professional must successfully complete an approved health educational programme and pass Licensure or certification examinations.
