    3. A State may not, until two years since the assessment of the penalty (or penalties) has elapsed, approve a nurse aide training and competency evaluation program or competency evaluation program offered by or in a facility that, within the two-year period beginning October 1, 1988--

  5. Withdrawal of approval.
    1. The State must withdraw approval of a nurse aide training and competency evaluation program or nurse aide competency evaluation program offered by or in a facility described in paragraph (b)(2) of this section.

    3. The State must withdraw approval of a nurse aide training and competency evaluation program or a nurse aide competency evaluation program if the entity providing the program refuses to permit unannounced visits by the State.
    4. If a State withdraws approval of a nurse aide training and competency evaluation program or competency evaluation program--
      1. The State must notify the program in writing, indicating the reason(s) for withdrawal of approval of the program.
