Disability Advisory Committee

The Disability Advisory Committee evaluates, for the Board, nurses and CNAs regarding substance use disorder or other mental disorders which may be impairing nursing practice.  It also monitors recovery progress through scheduled interviews with the nurse or nursing assistant and through regular reports from employers and treatment providers.  The entire committee meets semiannually to review the monitoring process, conceptual model, and provider status; plan education presentations; and formulate proposals for policy and procedural changes to the Board.  Representatives of the committee meet to make recommendations to the Board regarding application and/or reinstatement of licensure/certification, termination of probation, and as part of the investigative process.
