31. A nurse who is notified that the equivalence eligibility committee has decided not to grant equivalence may request a review of the decision, provided that she submits a request in writing to the secretary of the Order within 30 days of receipt of the decision.
The board of directors of the Order must, at its first regular meeting following the date on which such request was received, examine the request for review. It must, before rendering a decision, allow the nurse to submit her comments at this meeting.
A nurse who wishes to attend the meeting in order to be heard must notify the secretary of the Order at least 5 days prior to the scheduled meeting date. The nurse may, however, submit comments in writing to the secretary at any time before the scheduled meeting date.
The decision of the board of directors of the Order shall be final and must be sent to the nurse by registered mail within 30 days of the date on which the meeting took place.
