​​​​​​​​Kentucky Board of Nursing’s Compliance Branch consists of monitoring KARE participants and those with discipline on their license/credential to assure that these participants are safe to return to practice. The Branch also works with nurses who are seeking to reinstate their license following a period of disciplinary action (suspension, voluntary surrender, denied reinstatement).​
