Application Materials and Information
You may obtain a copy of the application packet on our "Applications/Forms" web page in MS Word and Adobe Acrobat format. Applications are processed as quickly as possible. Please allow sufficient time for the program to process your application before contacting us. Numerous calls inquiring on the status of an application can cause delays in processing.
The Department is required to run criminal history checks through the Department of Public Safety on all new applicants. Failure to fully and truthfully disclose criminal history information could lead to disciplinary action up to and including revocation or denial of licensure.
