Current Bill Summary

SB 370 - Currently, the State Board of Nursing may file a complaint against a licensee for certain causes with the Administrative Hearing Commission. This act adds additional causes to the list.

This act provides that for certain causes the Board may request an emergency suspension or restriction of a person's license with the Commission. The act describes the process for the proceedings that the Board and the Commission must follow, and how many days the Commission has to answer the complaint and render a decision. If the Commission does not find probable cause and does not grant the emergency suspension then the Board must remove all references to the proceedings from public record.

The Board may also initiate before the Board a hearing for discipline of a licensee's license when certain causes exists.

This act is similar to provisions contained in SS/HCS/HB 315 (2013).
