The board may revoke, suspend, or cancel the license of an athletic trainer upon any one of these grounds:

(1)    The athletic trainer is guilty of fraud in the practice of athletic training or fraud or deceit in the athletic trainer's admission to the practice of athletic training;

(2)    The athletic trainer has been convicted of a felony during the past five years. The conviction of a felony is the conviction of any offense, which if committed within this state would constitute a felony under its laws;

(3)    The athletic trainer is engaged in the practice of athletic training under a false or assumed name and has not registered that name pursuant to chapter 37-11, or is impersonating another practitioner of a like or different name;

(5)    The physical or mental condition of the athletic trainer is determined by a medical examiner to be such as to jeopardize or endanger those who seek relief from the athletic trainer. A majority of the board may demand an examination of the athletic trainer by a competent medical examiner selected by the board at the board's expense. If the athletic trainer fails to submit to the examination, this constitutes immediate grounds for suspension of the license;

(6)    The athletic trainer obtains or attempts to obtain a license or renewal thereof by bribery or fraudulent representation; or

(7)    The athletic trainer has violated any provision of this chapter or the rules promulgated pursuant to this chapter.
