We work closely with the Wisconsin Department of Regulation and Licensing and the relevant professional licensing boards to help our clients keep their professional licenses. And we strive to help candidates keep their positions at hospitals or other healthcare facilities while working toward being licensed.Right now you may be asking yourself:
