News Advisory on the use of the title of Executive Director

Advisory

The purpose of this advisory is to inform applicants and licensed nursing home administrators of the Board’s opinion regarding the use of the title of “Executive Director” in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The Board’s statutes and regulations define a Nursing Home Administrator as a person who administers, manages, supervises, or is in general administrative charge of a nursing home who has been licensed and registered by the Board. No one may practice or represent himself to be a licensed Nursing Home Administrator in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts without first obtaining a license to do so. The Board may refer any and all unauthorized practice to appropriate law enforcement for additional action.

The Board has opined that the use of the title of Executive Director is equivalent to the use of the title of a Nursing Home Administrator if the person’s duties and responsibilities are that of a Nursing Home Administrator.
