WAC 246-840-240

Extension.

A nurse who does not meet continuing competency requirements in WAC 246-840-220 within the three-year audit review period may request an extension of up to one year to allow the nurse to complete the remaining hours. The commission will conduct an audit at the end of the extension period to ensure compliance. In order to qualify for an extension, a nurse must agree to complete the remaining practice and continuing education hours within one year or less. If the remaining active nursing practice hours and continuing nursing education hours are not completed within one year, the commission will refer the nurse for disciplinary action.
