Continuing education for nursing home administrators

Learn about continuing education (CE) requirements, maintaining records, accepted programs, and AIT preceptors.

Continuing education requirements

You must complete a minimum of 40 contact hours of continuing education activities that meet the applicable requirements. This needs to be done between July of each even-numbered year and June 30 of the next even-numbered year.

Maintain records of your CEUs

When renewing your license, you must sign a statement that you have completed the required CEUs. However, you must still maintain a record of all completed continuing education activities for 4 years.

Periodically, the Board conducts a random audit and requires a percentage of licensees to submit a listing and verification of CEUs obtained. Failure or refusal to provide proof of completion of the required number of CEUs upon request by the Board may result in disciplinary action by the Board.

Kinds of accepted continuing education programs

Board regulations at 245 CMR 2.12 (4) explain in detail the content and program administration requirements for continuing education programs.

As with all CEUs, anyone serving as a preceptor must keep copies related to the approved preceptorship for a period of no less than 4 consecutive licensure periods.
