A separate application shall be submitted for each additional location from which a nurse agency is operated. All applications must be under oath and must be accompanied by an equitable application fee which will be set by the Department by rule. A separate license must be obtained for each location from which a nurse agency is operated unless the nurse agency is owned and managed by the same person or persons. Submission of false or misleading information is a petty offense punishable by a fine of $500. The application shall contain the following information:
    (1) name and address of the person, partnership, corporation or other entity that is the applicant;

    (4) the names and addresses of the person or persons under whose management or supervision the nurse agency will be operated;
    (5) a statement of financial solvency;
    (6) a statement detailing the experience and qualifications of the applicant to operate a nurse agency, however, the failure of a nurse agency to demonstrate previous experience to operate an agency does not in and of itself constitute grounds for the denial of a license;
    (7) evidence of compliance or intent to comply with State or federal law relating to employee compensation, including but not limited to, social security taxes, State and federal income taxes, workers' compensation, unemployment taxes, and State and federal overtime compensation laws;
    (8) evidence of professional liability insurance in the amounts of at least $500,000 per incident and $1,000,000 in aggregate; and
