Intervention Evaluation Committee

The Intervention Evaluation Committee (IEC) evaluates registered nurses who request admission into the Intervention Program. The IEC determines a nurse’s eligibility to participate in the Program, develop the participant’s individual rehabilitation plan, and determines whether the participant may safely continue or resume the practice of nursing.

There are several IECs located throughout California. Each IEC is composed of 5 members (3 registered nurses, 1 physician, 1 public member) with expertise in field of substance use disorder and/or mental health. Each IEC meets on a quarterly basis.
