The Minnesota Board of Examiners for Nursing Home Administrators (BENHA) issues licenses annually for the year running from July 1 to June 30. To remain continuously licensed you must meet continuing education requirements and renew your license annually by June 30.
Any licensee serving as the administrator of a Minnesota nursing home is required to display their license in a conspicuous place in the facility visible to residents and visitors. Others may keep their licenses in any safe, easily accessible place.
Licensees who serve as administrators for two facilities must obtain a second (duplicate) license from the board so that they can display their license at both facilities that they administer. There is a $10 fee.
Any licensee who loses, destroys or damages their license (or has a name change requiring a new license) may obtain a duplicate license for a fee of $10 and a notarized statement concerning the disposition of their earlier issued license. For a name change, a copy of the legal document showing pre and post names is preferred.
A Minnesota licensee seeking licensure in another state will generally need to have BENHA furnish the other state information about his/her license in Minnesota—when it was first granted, what qualifications were met, NAB exam scores, whether discipline has ever been imposed, etc. BENHA will provide this information, authenticated with the official seal of the board as is usually required by other states, for a $30 fee. Licensees requesting this service should send their check (payable to “MN-BENHA”) with a note naming the state to which the Minnesota verification is to be sent.
Online License Verification is available and encouraged. This is the official for your license to be validated and verified to other states. Licenses that expired prior to the use of our current database will not be available online. Only an official verification (see above) is available for those.
