2016-2017 Renewal for LNHAs

Online renewals are available online May 1st to June 30th. 

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.Fee for renewal is $200. 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.

To renew between May 1 and June 30:

  1. Log-in to you online user account (I forgot my username/password)
  2. Select the renewal option in your user account
  3. Have your CE certificates and method of payment (VISA or Mastercard/credit or debit) ready
  4. Complete the online renewal process

I'd like to fill out a paper renewal form

LNHA Job Posting Service

A LNHA requested that BENHA provide a job posting service which is now live on the website with a limited group of postings. The Board supports the existing association model of job postings and added this feature as another resource to connect the LNHA to communities requiring a LNHA as their administrator of record.  Since it is a trial period, the board appreciates any feedback to improve this new service.
