These pages contain lists of persons who have been admonished to exercise care in the future for a minor violation of a Board statute or rule.  An admonishment is not discipline and is not subject to a contested case appeal.  Rather, it serves as a warning for future conduct.

There is a table for each month that admonishments were issued. The table contains a list of the persons who received an admonishment as well as a link to the actual scanned Admonishments for the period. You will need to scroll the pages to find the person you wish to view.
