§ 2526.1. Provisional Approval.
(a) Provisional approval means a program has not met all requirements as set forth in this Chapter and in Chapter 6.5, Division 2 of the Business and Professions Code.
(b) Provisional approval shall be granted for a period determined by the Board.
(c) The Board may place any program on provisional approval when that program does not meet all requirements as set forth in this Chapter and in Section 2526. If the program has not met all requirements at the end of the initial provisional approval period, provisional approval may be extended if the program demonstrates to the satisfaction of the Board a good faith effort to correct all deficiencies.
(d) Any program holding provisional approval may not admit “new” classes beyond the established pattern of admission previously approved by the Board. The admission pattern is defined by the number of students per class and the frequency of admissions for the six class admissions that immediately precede the Board action to consider provisional approval.
(e) A program placed on provisional approval shall receive written notification from the Board. The notification to the program shall include specific areas of noncompliance and requirements for correction. A program's failure to correct delineated areas of noncompliance is cause for revocation of provisional approval.
(f) A material misrepresentation of fact by a vocational nursing program in any information submitted to the Board is cause for revocation of provisional approval.
(g) A program whose provisional approval has been revoked shall be removed from the Board's list of approved programs. The status of students as potential applicants for licensure will be determined by the Board.
(h) A program that is removed from the Board's list of approved programs subsequent to Board action based on the program's non-compliance with applicable regulations shall not reapply to establish a vocational nursing program for a minimum period of one calendar year.
