This administrative regulation establishes the requirements for registering in Kentucky as a nonresident psychologist.

††††† (2) A nonresident psychologist temporarily employed in the state may render psychological services no more than thirty (30) days every two (2) years with the approval of the board if the nonresident psychologist is duly licensed in a jurisdiction not established as having reciprocity with the board and holds none of the qualifications described in subsection (1) of this section.

 

††††† Section 2. Pursuant to KRS 319.015(8), a nonresident licensee holder who seeks to practice temporarily in Kentucky shall file a written registration with the board. The registration shall be a written letter sent to the board:

††††† (b) Stating the dates he or she intends to practice in Kentucky.

††††† (2) Board approval shall be contingent upon:

††††† (a) Receipt of documentation that the nonresident psychologist holds a valid license in good standing from another jurisdiction; and

††††† (b) Confirmation that the applicant does not have a report of disciplinary action filed with the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards.

††††† (3)(a) Nonresident temporary practice pursuant to KRS 319.015(8) shall be conditionally approved by the chair of the board if:

††††† 1. The applicant for temporary practice meets the conditions for practice established by KRS 319.015(8); and

††††† 2. The applicant has registered with the board.

††††† (b) The conditional approval shall terminate at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the board. At that meeting, the board shall determine whether to approve the temporary practice.

 

††††† Section 3. Upon the completion of the authorized temporary employment period, the nonresident license holder shall submit a written report to the board of each date on which psychological services were rendered in this state, and the location of the site of those services.

 

††††† Section 4. For purposes of this administrative regulation, the provision of psychological services on a given date, regardless of the period of time of those services, shall constitute one (1) day.

 

††††† Section 5. Pursuant to KRS 319.015(8), the provisions of this administrative regulation shall:

††††† (1) Apply to a nonresident psychologist temporarily employed in the state for a period of fewer than thirty (30) days every two (2) years; and

††††† (2) Not be used to begin practice in Kentucky by an applicant for temporary or regular licensure pending credentials review.

 

††††† Section 6. A person licensed to practice psychology in another jurisdiction may practice psychology by electronic or telephonic means in Kentucky if he or she registers with the board and receives board approval for this practice. A person seeking this approval shall follow the provisions set forth in Sections 1 through 4 of this administrative regulation.

 

††††† Section 7. A person licensed to practice psychology in another jurisdiction and who is providing service in response to a declared disaster pursuant to an agreement between the American Red Cross and the American Psychological Associationís Disaster Response Network may begin practice in Kentucky upon notification to the board.
