The mission of the Board of Examiners for Nursing Home Administrators is to promote the public's interest in quality care and effective services for residents of nursing facilities by ensuring that licensed administrators are qualified to perform their administrative duties.


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.



Following the July 29, 2015 BENHA Board Meeting, revisions were sent to the Revisor’s Office and the attached copy provides the specific language in rules potentially to be revised.  This is a preliminary review of the work so far in preparation for the October 28, 2015 board meeting.
