Robert L. Hollings, Christal Pike-Nase, Christal A. Pike-NaseISBN: 0313304408;
A sourcebook for policymakers, regulators, licensees, and consumers who wish to gain a better understanding of the regulation of the major professions and occupations within the 50 states. Topics covered include occupational licensing restrictions, boarddisciplinary activities, and current licensure trends. The limited available literature on the subject of licensure demonstrates that state professional and occupational licensure boards play a critical role in protecting the public from unqualified and unscrupulous practitioners. The primary responsibility of licensing boards is to protect consumers by ensuring that practitioners meet established criteria for admission, maintain competency, and adhere to ethical and practice standards.
