DSPS Secretary Dawn Crim Leaving Evers Administration
Earlier in July, Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS) Secretary Dawn Crim announced that she will be leaving the Evers Administration on August 1, 2022. The State Medical Examining Board and the State Board of Nursing are housed within DSPS, which also processes nearly all occupational license applications in Wisconsin, including licenses for physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals. Earlier this year, DSPS implemented an online platform for health care occupational license applications. The agency will transition the remaining occupational licenses that they handle to their online platform in the future.
Governor Evers has announced that DSPS Assistant Deputy Secretary Dan Hereth will be the DSPS Secretary-designee upon Secretary Crim’s departure.
