Board of Nursing Home Administrators
The purpose of the Board of Nursing Home Administrators is to protect and advocate for Missouri’s long-term care residents by licensing prospective and current long-term care administrators to ensure the highest quality of care and life in Missouri’s long-term care homes. A long-term care administrator is someone who administers, manages, supervises, or is in general administrative charge of a long-term care facility (skilled care, intermediate care, assisted living and residential care facility II).
Duties and responsibilities of the Board of Nursing Home Administrators are to develop and enforce standards for long-term care administrators; formulate appropriate examinations, and; issue, renew, and discipline licenses. The board investigates complaints; evaluates and approves continuing education courses to meet license renewal requirements; controls a trainee program for prospective long-term care administrators; and maintains a register of all licensed long-term care administrators including applicants practicing under a temporary emergency license.
