Department of Veterans Affairs January 10, 2022 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Modifications of Approval Requirements for Courses Designed To Prepare Individuals for Licensure or Certifications
Document Number: 2021-27942
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2022-01-10
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is proposing to amend its regulations to implement the provisions of the Jeff Miller and Richard Blumenthal Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2016. In this proposed rule, we would add new approval requirements as specified in the statutory provisions for accredited and nonaccredited programs designed to prepare an individual for licensure and certification in a State. We would also implement VA's new authority to waive the added approval requirements under certain circumstances and adjust the authority of a State approving agency to add new approval criteria. In addition, we would add a circumstance for disapproval of a program designed to prepare an individual for licensure and certification, as prescribed by the law we are implementing.
