Provisional practice is granted by the Board of Nursing upon approval, in writing from the board, of the Application for Registration by Examination for 120 days. An applicant with provisional authorization must immediately cease acting as a medication aide at the end of the 120-day period or upon notification of failure after three attempts to pass the written state examination required for registration, whichever comes first.
