Q&A: Reporting State Licensure and
Certification Actions

  1. If, as a result of a formal proceeding, a State licensing board suspends a practitioner's license for 1 year, but stays 3 months of the suspension, how should it be reported?

    The State licensing board must report the 9-month suspension (1-year suspension, minus the 3-month stayed suspension). The stayed portion of the suspension should not be reported to the NPDB.
