Secretary of State Jeffrey Bullock has ordered the temporary suspension of the Delaware nursing license of Aja M. Terry of Newark, Delaware, following her arrest and subsequent extradition to Maryland where she has been charged with first-degree murder and first-degree child abuse.

In making his determination, Secretary Bullock considered the written complaint filed with the Board of Nursing for temporary suspension of the professional license of Ms. Terry. The Delaware Code Titles 23 and 24 were amended on April 15, 2014, to enable a temporary suspension pending a hearing to be issued upon the written order of the Secretary of State with the concurrence of the Board chair if the activity of the licensee presents a clear and immediate danger to the public health, safety or welfare.

As a result of the actions taken today, the suspension of Ms. Terry’s license will remain in effect for a period of 60 days during which time a disciplinary hearing will be held to determine the final disposition for the nurse.
