|Date Filed||8/9/2013 [Transmittal Sheet]|
|Petitioner||Gregory J. Huber|
To revise requirements for continuing competency for nurses reactivating an inactive license or reinstating an expired license so requirements are not weaker than those for renewal of an active license. To reconsider passage of the National Council Licensing Examination as a method for reactivation/reinstatement.
In accordance with Virginia law, the petition to amend the regulations was posted on the Virginia Regulatory Townhall at www.townhall.virginia.gov. It has also been filed with the Register of Regulations for publication on September 9, 2013. Comment on the petition from interested parties is requested until October 8, 2013.
Following receipt of all comments on the petition, the request to examine continuing competency requirements for persons reactivating or reinstating a license will be considered by the Board at its meeting on November 19, 2013.

|Agency Decision Summary||
At its meeting on November 20, 2013, the Board decided to issue a Notice of Intended Regulatory Action in response to the petition. At the time continuing competency requirements were adopted, the Board recognized that there was some inconsistency between regulations for renewal of licensure and those for reactivation and reinstatement. Since those sections were not identified in the original Notice, it was determined that they could not be amended as part of the regulatory action at that time. Regulatory language will be developed after publication of the Notice.
