Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

36-9-39Licensing of licensed practical or vocational nurse from another state or country.

Upon application and payment of the required fee, the board may issue a license to practice as a licensed practical nurse by endorsement to any applicant who is a graduate of an approved program or has met the requirements by equivalency and has been licensed as a licensed practical nurse or licensed vocational nurse under the laws of another state, territory, or foreign country, if, in the opinion of the board, the applicant meets the qualifications required of licensed practical nurses in this state at the time of original licensure. However, if any applicant for licensure by endorsement has not been engaged in the practice of nursing in the past six years, the board may establish reentry standards, by rules promulgated pursuant to chapter 1-26, and may require written evidence, verified by oath, as may be necessary to determine compliance with the standards.
