(a)  The Division shall employ a system of initial and renewal applications, complaint investigation and on‑site inspections for nursing pools with sites in the state as a means for monitoring and determining program compliance.  This system shall be applied uniformly to all licensed and license‑exempt nursing pool premises.  Routine licensing renewal activities may be conducted by mail.  Licensing of nursing pools with sites outside the state, but which provide personnel to health care facilities within the state, shall be conducted by mail.

(b)  In the event of non‑compliance with any rule or rules in this Subchapter or the Nursing Pool Licensure Act, the business shall be given no more than thirty days, the specific time period to be determined by the Division, to correct the non‑compliance.

(c)  The Division may suspend, revoke, annul, withdraw, recall, cancel, or amend a license in accordance with G.S. 131E‑154.6 for any nursing pool that substantially fails to comply with the rules contained in this Subchapter or that fails to implement an approved plan of correction for violations of rules cited by the Division.  A nursing pool may appeal any adverse decision made by the Division concerning its license by making such appeal in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, G.S. 150B and departmental rules 10A NCAC 01 et seq.  As provided for in G.S. 131E‑154.7, the Division may seek injunctive relief to prevent a person from establishing or operating a nursing pool without a license.
