Rule 4759-4-08 | Limited permit.


(A) The board may grant a limited permit to a person who has completed the education and preprofessional requirements for licensure upon the following conditions:

(1) The person has filed a completed application for a limited permit and paid the appropriate fee;

(2) The application contains any required statements or transcripts verifying completion of the academic and preprofessional requirements in order to qualify to take the examination for licensure; and

(3) The applicant indicates intent to take the examination for licensure within six months of the issuance of the limited permit.

(B) The permit shall expire if the permit holder fails to take the examination in a timely manner or fails the examination twice.

(C) Limited permits shall expire six months after the date of issuance.

(D) A limited permit may be renewed once.

(E) A limited permit holder who fails the examination must report the results to the board office immediately.

(1) The first time the limited permit holder fails, the limited permit holder shall practice only under the direct supervision of an Ohio licensed dietitian.

(2) The second time the limited permit holder fails, the limited permit expires immediately.

(F) A limited permit shall not be issued to a person who has failed the examination two or more times.

(G) The licensed dietitian who provides direct supervision of a person who has failed the examination and holds a limited permit shall provide sufficient guidance and direction to enable the person to perform competently and to protect the public.

(1) The licensed dietitian shall document a supervision plan for the limited permit holder to include specific goals and strategies for assuring competent entry level practice. The supervising dietitian shall periodically document the limited permit holders progress. Documentation shall include, but is not limited to, dates of conferences, supervisory notes, written evaluations and recommendations. Documentation should be maintained in the licensed dietitians records and be available upon request of the board.

(2) Direct supervision means that the licensee providing the supervision needs to be readily available by telecommunication, or in person and the licensee must review the work of the supervisee at least every seven days. When reviewing the work of a supervisee, the licensee shall comply with standards for professional responsibility and practice set forth in Chapter 4759-6 of the Administrative Code.

(H) It is the licensed dietitians responsibility to supervise the limited permit holder and to adequately document that supervision. Failure to do so shall be considered a violation of the minimal standards of care for the licensed dietitian and may result in discipline of the licensed dietitian by the state medical board.
