LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 3016, as amended, Megan Dahle. Board of Registered Nursing: online license verification.
The Nursing Practice Act provides for the licensure and regulation of nurses by the Board of Registered Nursing within the Department of Consumer Affairs. Existing law also requires the board to issue temporary or expedited licenses to specified applicants who hold a current, active, and unrestricted license in another state, district, or territory of the United States, in the profession or vocation for which the applicant seeks a license from the board.
This bill would require the board to consult with the department no later than July 1, 2021, and develop recommendations for the implementation of the Nursys online license verification system for verifying the licenses of California nurses seeking to practice outside the state. The bill would require the board to implement those recommendations within a reasonable period.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 2718 is added to the Business and Professions Code, to read:

2718.
 (a) The board shall consult with the department no later than July 1, 2021, and shall develop recommendations for the implementation of the Nursys online license verification system for verifying the licenses of California nurses seeking to practice outside the state.
(b) The board shall implement the recommendations developed pursuant to subdivision (a) within a reasonable period upon completion of the development of those recommendations.
