(a) The board, without examination, may issue a license to a person who has been in
the active practice of acupuncture in some other state, territory, the District of
Columbia or other country upon certification by the proper licensing authority of
that state, territory, District of Columbia or other country certifying that the applicant
is duly licensed, that the applicant's license has never been limited, suspended or
revoked, that the licensee has never been censured or received other disciplinary
actions and that, so far as the records of such authority are concerned, the applicant
is entitled to such licensing authority's endorsement. The applicant shall also present proof satisfactory to the board:
(1) That the state, territory, District of Columbia or country in which the applicant
last practiced has and maintains standards at least equal to those maintained in Kansas;
(2) that the applicant's original license was based upon an examination at least equal
in quality to the examination required in this state and that the passing grade required
to obtain such original license was comparable to that required in this state;
(3) the date of the applicant's original license and all endorsed licenses and the
date and place from which any license was attained;
(4) the applicant has been actively engaged in practice under such license or licenses
since issued. The board may adopt rules and regulations establishing qualitative and quantitative
practice activities which qualify as active practice;
(5) that the applicant has a reasonable ability to communicate in English; and
(6) that the applicant has paid all the application fees as prescribed by K.S.A. 65-7611, and amendments thereto.
(b) An applicant for a license by endorsement shall not be licensed unless, as determined
by the board, the applicant's individual qualifications are substantially equivalent
to the Kansas requirements for licensure under the acupuncture practice act.
