SB 375 - Under current law, an applicant for a nursing home administrator license must have a minimum of three years of experience or two years of postsecondary education in health care administration or have satisfactorily completed a course of instruction prescribed by the Board, and passed the examination administered by the Board.
Under this act, such applicant may meet this requirement if he or she has an associate degree or higher from an accredited academic institution and has met the criteria established by the Board.
Current law allows the Board to issue a temporary emergency license for a period of 90 days to a person 21 years of age or older, of good moral character and a high school graduate or equivalent. This act permits the Board to issue such license for a period of 120 days to a person that has met the temporary emergency license criteria established by the Board.
This act is substantially similar to HB 958 (2019) and HCS/SS/SCS/SBs 70 & 128 (2019).
