Healing arts: expedited licensure process: medically underserved area or population.

Abstract

Existing law establishes various boards within the Department of Consumer Affairs to license and regulate various health professionals. Existing law requires specified boards to expedite the licensure process of an applicant who can demonstrate that they intend to provide abortions within their scope of practice and specifies the documentation an applicant is required to provide to demonstrate their intent. This bill would require the Board of Behavioral Sciences, the Board of Registered Nursing, the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians of the State of California, the California State Board of Pharmacy, the Dental Board of California, the Dental Hygiene Board of California, and the Physician Assistant Board to develop a process to expedite the licensure process by giving priority review status to the application of an applicant for a license who demonstrates that they intend to practice in a medically underserved area or serve a medically underserved population, as defined. The bill would authorize an applicant for a license to demonstrate their intent to practice in a medically underserved area or serve a medically underserved population by providing proper documentation, including, but not limited to, a letter from an employer that includes prescribed information. The bill would provide that compliance with the bill does not require the department or any of the boards to open a regulatory or rulemaking process to change their licensee application process and would deem a board to be in compliance if it includes a supplemental letter or cover statement to their application explaining the availability of the expedited licensure process and indicating what an applicant's employer would need to provide to the board for the applicant to qualify for the priority review status. The bill would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2029.
