Renew Your NHA License Early! Online Renewal Available through June 30!

BENHA Online Logo 

Annual renewal for LNHAs in Minnesota is now available through June 30.

Current licenses expire June 30 each year.  LNHAs must renew their license prior to July 1 to assure they have a current license on that date . Renewing prior to June 30 assures that the $50 late fee is not assessed, and for LNHAs who are administrators of record in Minnesota skilled facilities, this means avoidance of any ramifications regarding compliance issues resulting from unlicensed practice. Fee for renewal is $220, which includes the $200 renewal fee and a $20 OET surcharge for licenses issued from July 1, 2011- June 30, 2015. [See March 2011 newsletter regarding the OET surcharge.]

Rules Committee Update

The Rules Committee and the Academic/Licensure Committee of the board are currently reviewing the academic and practicum preparatory requirements for Minnesota Licensed Nursing Home Administrators. The initial work will be presented for public review and comment for BENHA stakeholders on June 10, 2015.  The ongoing rule writing project will continue to evolve over the next 3-6 months with all current rules and statutes to be reviewed.  All meetings are open to the public and posted on the website. Minutes and proposed action will also be posted on the website for review and comment with a proposed full board review on July 22, 2015.

The initial work models the current Minnesota core requirements with the recent research provided by the NAB-Professional Practice Analysis which meets the evolving practice of long term care, required for an administrator to be successful.
