Amend the bill, as and if amended, on page 2, by striking lines 24 through 33 and inserting:

/ (d) the graduate nurse has not taken the NCLEX within ninety days of receiving a temporary license, except that the board may extend this time period if circumstances prevent the NCLEX from being offered during the period for which temporary licensure has been granted;

(e) the graduate nurse misrepresents being a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse; or

(f) the graduate nurse is charged with a felony or misdemeanor, other than a minor traffic violation, while authorized to practice as a graduate nurse. For the purposes of this subitem, a minor traffic violation does not include instances related in any way to driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, or instances that result in the revocation or suspension of a graduate nurse's driver's license." /
