Agency Decision Summary

The petition was considered by the Board at its meeting on January 14, 2022. While the Board is proposing changes to its regulations for licensure by endorsement to eliminate requirements for active practice in another jurisdiction, it did not choose to eliminate the requirement for supervised clinical experience if one does not already hold a clinical license in the other jurisdiction. Therefore, the Board determined it would take no action on the petition.
