Sec. 16181.

(1) A board may grant a nonrenewable, temporary license to an applicant who has completed all requirements for licensure except for examination or other required evaluation procedure. A board shall not grant a temporary license to an individual who has previously failed the examination or other required evaluation procedure or whose license has been suspended or revoked. A temporary license issued under this subsection is valid for 18 months, but a board shall automatically void the temporary license if the applicant fails the examination or other required evaluation procedure.

(2) The Michigan board of nursing may grant a nonrenewable, temporary license to an applicant for a license under part 172 to engage in the practice of nursing as a registered professional nurse if the applicant is licensed as a registered professional nurse by an equivalent licensing board or authority in another state or is licensed as a registered professional nurse by an equivalent licensing board or authority in Canada. A temporary license issued under this subsection expires on the earliest of the following:

(a) One year after the date of issuance.

(b) The date the applicant is notified that he or she failed the commission on graduates of foreign nursing schools qualifying examination, as approved by the department.

(c) The date the applicant is notified that he or she failed the national council licensure examination, as approved by the department.

(f) The date the applicant is notified that he or she has failed to complete the application process for full licensure.

(3) The holder of a temporary license issued under subsection (1) or (5) shall practice only under the supervision of a licensee who holds a license, other than a health profession subfield license, in the same health profession. The holder of a temporary license issued under subsection (1) or (5) must not be supervised by a licensee who holds a limited license or temporary license.

(4) The department shall issue a temporary license within 48 hours upon receiving proof that the applicant's license issued by another state or a province in Canada is currently active and in good standing.

(5) Beginning 90 days after the effective date of the amendatory act that added this subsection, a board shall grant a temporary license to an applicant who meets all of the following:

(a) He or she provides proof acceptable to the board that he or she is married to a member of the armed forces of the United States who is on active duty. As used in this subdivision, "armed forces" means that term as defined in section 20950.

(b) He or she provides proof acceptable to the board that he or she holds a current license in good standing, or a current registration in good standing, in that health profession, issued by an equivalent licensing department, board, or authority, as determined by the board, in another state of the United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the United States Virgin Islands, another territory or protectorate of the United States, or a foreign country.

(c) He or she provides proof acceptable to the board that his or her spouse is assigned to a duty station in this state and that he or she is also assigned to a duty station in this state under his or her spouse's permanent change of station orders.

(d) He or she complies with section 16174(3) so that a criminal history check is conducted in the manner prescribed in that section.

(6) A temporary license issued under subsection (5) is valid for 6 months and may be renewed for 1 additional 6-month term if the board determines the temporary licensee continues to meet the requirements of subsection (5) and needs additional time to fulfill the requirements for initial licensure under this article.
