The Board will consider the petition at its meeting on April 9, 2003 to determine if it should amend proposed regulations that will be adopted as final at that meeting. If it does not amend the regulation and following the comment period, the Board will place the issue of the agenda of its next meeting to decide whether to initiate a regulatory action.

The Board determined that an associate's degree (60 academic hours) is the basic criteria for the administrator-in-training program, so no additional hours of credit should be given to persons with that degree and some work experience in a nursing home.
