Every person who desires to obtain a certificate of registration shall apply to the Department of Registration and Education, in writing, upon blanks prepared and furnished by the Department of Registration and Education. Each application shall contain proof of the particular qualifications required of the applicant, shall be verified by the applicant, under oath, and shall be accompanied by the required fee.

§ 4. The Department of Registration and Education shall hold examinations of applicants for certificates of registration as registered nurses at such times and places as it may determine. The examination of applicants for certificates of registration as registered nurses may include both practical demonstrations and written and oral tests and shall embrace the subjects usually taught in schools of nursing, approved by the Department of Registration and Education. § 5. Whenever the provisions of this Act have been complied with, the Department of Registration and Education shall issue a certificate of registration as a registered nurse. Any certificate of registration heretofore issued under the laws of this State authorizing its holder to practice nursing, as a registered nurse, shall serve the same purpose as the certificate of registration as a registered nurse provided for by this Act. § 6. Every registered nurse who continues in active practice shall, annually, on or before the first day of April, renew his or her certificate of registration and pay the required renewal fee. Every certificate of registration which has not been renewed during the month of April in any year shall expire on the first day of May in that year. A registered nurse whose certificate of registration has expired may renew his or her certificate of registration only upon payment of the required restoration fee. Any registered nurse who retires from the practice of nursing for not more than five years may renew his or her certificate of registration upon payment of all lapsed fees. § 7. The Department of Registration and Education may either refuse to issue, or may refuse to renew, or may suspend, or may revoke, any certificate of registration, for any, or any combination, of the following causes: (a) The wilful violation of, or the wilful procuring of, or knowingly assisting in the violation of, any Act which is now or which hereafter may be in force in this State relating to the use of habit forming drugs; (b) The wilful violation of, or the wilful procuring of, or knowingly assisting in the violation of any Act which is now or which hereafter may be in force in this State relating to the practice of abortion; (c) The obtaining of, or attempt to obtain, a certificate of registration, or practice in the profession, or money, or any other thing of value, by fraudulent representation; (d) Gross negligence in the practice of nursing; (e) Continued practice by a person knowingly having an infectious, communicable, or contagious disease; (f) Habitual drunkenness, or habitual addiction to the use of morphine, cocaine or other habit forming drugs. The Department of Registration and Education may neither refuse to issue, nor refuse to renew, nor suspend, nor revoke any certificate of registration, however, for any of these causes, unless the person accused has been given at least 20 days’ notice, in writing, of the charge against him or her, and a public hearing by the Department of Registration and Education. Upon the hearing of any such proceeding, the Director of Registration and Education, the Assistant Director of Registration and Education or the Superintendent of Registration, may administer oaths, and the Department of Registration and Education may procure by its subpoena, the attendance of witnesses and the production of relevant books and papers. Any Circuit Court, or any judge of a Circuit Court either in term time or in vacation, upon the application, either of the accused or of the Department of Registration and Education, may, by order, fully entered, require the attendance of witnesses and the production of relevant books and papers, before the Department of Registration and Education, in any hearing relating to the refusal, suspension or revocation of certificates of registration.
