licensure by endorsement or relicensure to disclose each license, registration, or certification in a health
profession or specialty issued by any other jurisdiction or entity and require the applicant to demonstrate
that no disciplinary proceedings are currently pending and that any prior sanction has been satisfied
before being licensed by endorsement or relicensed. The amendments also provide the standards for
supervision of a veterinary technician and limited licensee, establish the requirements for delegating a
