Licensing Process (Administrative Review)

The Licensing Process is shown here.​  This flow chart explains each step toward licensure.

Applications that include derogatory information are subject to Administrative Review.  Derogatory information generally falls into one of the following categories: criminal history, educational or training issues, previous employment issues, malpractice claims, board orders or investigations from other states, and health concerns.

During Administrative Review, the Executive Director, Licensing Manager, senior licensing staff member and, occasionally, the Medical Director review the completed application file.  If the group determines that the applicant meets the qualifications for licensure and is safe to practice, the applicant will be licensed.  If there are remaining questions, the applicant will be subject to further review by the Administrative Affairs Committee and full Board.  

The Administrative Affairs Committee may recommend, and the Board may determine, that the applicant should be licensed, licensed with a Board Order placing limits or requirements on the license, interviewed by the Medical Director or Investigative Committee, allowed to withdraw, or denied licensure.
