(INDIANA STATEHOUSE) - Doctors and nurses in Indiana may soon have to undergo criminal background checks.

Indianapolis Senator and Registered Nurse Patricia Miller says she'll ask legislators next year to require doctors, nurses, and as many as 22 other health-care providers to pay for a federal background check to get their licenses.

Indiana requires licensing for more than 200 professions, but only real estate appraisers, security guards and private investigators must undergo background checks.

Miller says health professionals, from acupuncturists to veterinarians, should join them.
