WHY CAN'T I VIEW ELECTRONIC COPIES OF ALL BOARD ORDERS LISTED?
Most Board Orders issued from January 1, 1998 until the present are available to view on the Board's website. Orders prior to that date are available from the Board in paper format only via US mail or fax. Electronic copies of Corrective Action Orders, and orders that modify or terminate them, are not posted because they are not disciplinary actions. Complaint and Notices of Proposed Disciplinary Action are also not posted because they are not final actions by the Board. Both Orders, however, are public and are available upon request, as described below.
