§ 2557.2. Out-of-State Practitioner Authorization to Participate in Sponsored Event.
(a) Request for Authorization to Participate. An out-of-state practitioner (“applicant”) may request authorization from the Board to participate in a sponsored event and provide such health care services at the sponsored event as would be permitted if the applicant were licensed by the Board to provide those services. An applicant shall request authorization by submitting to the Board a completed Request For Authorization To Practice Without A California License, Form 901-B (3/23/12), which is hereby incorporated by reference, accompanied by a non-refundable, and non-transferrable processing fee of fifty dollars ($50). The applicant shall also furnish either a full set of fingerprints or submit to a Live Scan process to establish the identity of the applicant and to permit the Board to conduct a criminal history record check. The applicant shall pay any costs for furnishing the fingerprints. The fingerprint requirement shall apply only to the first application for authorization that is submitted by the applicant if no more than four years have passed since the last Request for Authorization, Form 901-B (3/23/12) was received by the Board.
(b) Response to Request for Authorization to Participate. Within twenty (20) calendar days of receiving a completed request for authorization, the Board shall notify the sponsoring entity or local government entity administering the sponsored event, whether that request is approved or denied.
(c) Denial of Request for Authorization to Participate.
(1) The Board shall deny a request for authorization to participate if:
(A) The submitted Form 901-B (3/23/12) is incomplete and the applicant has not responded within seven (7) calendar days to the Board's request for additional information.
(B) The applicant has not met all of the following educational and experience requirements:
1. Completion of a course of instruction in vocational or practical nursing in a school accredited by the Board or another United States province, provided that the course completed is substantially equivalent to that prescribed by Section 2533 of this chapter.
2. Taken the National League for Nursing State Board Test Pool Examination for Practical Nurses or the National Council Licensing Examination for Practical Nurses, and passed said examination with a score equal to or above the minimum passing score required by the Board for said examination.
(C) The applicant has failed to comply with a requirement of this Article or has committed any act that would constitute grounds for denial of an application for licensure by the Board.
(D) The applicant does not possess a current valid license in good standing. The term “good standing” means the applicant:
1. Has not been charged with an offense for any act substantially related to the practice for which the applicant is licensed by any public agency.
2. Has not entered into any consent agreement or been subject to an administrative decision that contains conditions placed upon the applicant's professional conduct or practice, including any voluntary surrender of license.
3. Has not been the subject of an adverse judgment resulting from the practice for which the applicant is licensed that the Board determines constitutes evidence of a pattern of negligence or incompetence.
(E) The Board has not received a criminal history report for the applicant from the California Department of Justice.
(2) The Board may deny a request for authorization to participate if any of the following occurs:
(A) The request is received less than twenty (20) calendar days before the date on which the sponsored event will begin.
(B) The applicant has been previously denied a request for authorization by the Board to participate in a sponsored event.
(C) The applicant has previously had an authorization to participate in a sponsored event terminated by the Board.
(D) The applicant has participated in three (3) or more sponsored events during the twelve (12) month period immediately preceding the current application.
(d) Appeal of Denial. An applicant requesting authorization to participate in a sponsored event may appeal the denial of such request by following the procedures set forth in section 2557.3 (d).
