    License Renewal: The Renewal Process

    Renewal of Active License:

    A license expires on the second anniversary of its effective date, unless the license is renewed for a 2-year term.  At least one month before the license expires, the Board sends notices to the licensee, by first-class mail to the last known address of the licensee.
    The licensee may renew the license for an additional 2-year term, if the licensee:

    • Pays the renewal fee; 
    • Submits to the Board:  A renewal application and satisfactory evidence of compliance with any continuing education and other qualifications and requirements; and
    • Otherwise is entitled to be license.

    Reinstatement of Expired License:

    The Board shall reinstate the license of a nursing home administrator who has failed to renew the license for any reasons, if the licensee:

    • Has not had the license suspended or revoked;
    • Meets the renewal requirements above;
    • Pays the reinstatement fee;
    • Submits to the Board satisfactory evidence of compliance with the qualifications and requirements established under §9-312.

    The Board may not reinstate the license of a nursing home administrator who fails to apply for reinstatement of the license within 5 years after the license expires.  However, the nursing home administrator may become licensed by meeting the current requirements for obtaining a new license.


    Inactive Status

    If an individual has been licensed by the Board to practice as a nursing home administrator in the State, the individual may be licensed subsequently as a nursing home administrator on inactive status, retaining the licensee’s original license number.  A licensee’s inactive status expires on the second anniversary of its effective date, unless the licensee renews the inactive status for a 2-year term.
    The Board shall place a licensee on inactive status if the licensee submits to the Board:

    • An application for inactive status; and
    • The inactive status fee.

    The Board shall provide a licensee who is on inactive status written notification of:

    • The date that the licensee’s inactive status becomes effective;
    • The date that the licensee’s 2-year term of inactive status expires; and
    • The consequences of not renewing inactive status before expiration of the 2-year term of inactive status, and not resuming active status within the 5-year period of inactive status, beginning on the first day of inactive status.

    A nursing home administrator whose inactive license expires before the nursing home administrator returns to active licensure shall meet the reinstatement requirements of §9-312.


    Reactivation of Inactive License:

    The Board shall issue a license to a licensee who is on inactive status if the licensee:

    • Completes an application form for reactivation of a license before expiration of the 2-year term of inactive status;
    • Complies with the renewal requirements in effect at the time the licensee seeks to reactivate the license;
    • Meets the continuing education requirements set by the Board;
    • Has not practiced as a nursing home administrator in the State while on inactive status;
    • Pays all appropriate fees;
    • Has been on inactive status for less than 5 years; and
    • Is otherwise entitled to be licensed.
