5200 Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators
NATURE AND STAGE OF THE PROCEEDINGS
On October 1, 2012, the Delaware Board of Nursing Home Administrators published proposed changes to its regulations in the Delaware Register of Regulations, Volume 16, Issue 4. This notice further indicated that written comments would be accepted by the Board for thirty days, a public hearing would be held, and written comments would be accepted for fifteen days thereafter. After due notice in the Register of Regulations and two Delaware newspapers, a public hearing was held on November 13, 2012 at a regularly scheduled meeting of the Delaware Board of Nursing Home Administrators to receive verbal comments regarding the Board's proposed amendments to its regulations.
SUMMARY OF THE EVIDENCE AND INFORMATION SUBMITTED
At the time of the deliberations, the Board considered the following documents:
Board Exhibit 1 - Affidavit of publication of the public hearing notice in the News Journal; and
Board Exhibit 2 - Affidavit of publication of the public hearing notice in the Delaware State News.
There was no verbal testimony given at the public hearing on November 13, 2012. No written comments were received by the Board during the initial thirty day public comment period; nor were any written comments received after the public hearing during the fifteen day 29 Del.C. §10115(a) second public comment period.
FINDINGS OF FACT AND CONCLUSIONS
1. The public was given notice and an opportunity to provide the Board with comments in writing and by testimony at the public hearing on the proposed amendments to the Board's regulations.
2. There were no public comments provided to the Board during the two written public comment periods, or the public hearing.
3. Pursuant to 24 Del.C. §5206(1), the Board has statutory authority to promulgate rules and regulations clarifying specific statutory sections of its statute.
4. The proposed amendment to Rule 5.3.4 seeks to increase the number of online or similar continuing education courses licensees are permitted to take in order to meet the continuing education requirements. The proposed additions of Rules 5.6 and 5.6. 1 are an attempt to grant continuing education credits to approved preceptors for providing supervision to applicants for licensure.
5. Having received no public comments, the Board finds no reason to amend the regulations as proposed.
DECISION AND EFFECTIVE DATE
The Board hereby adopts the changes to its rules and regulations as proposed, to be effective 10 days following publication of this order in the Register of Regulations. The new regulations are attached hereto as Exhibit A.
SO ORDERED this 10th day of September, 2013.

1.1 Words and terms defined in Title 24, Chapter 52 of the Delaware Code are applicable to these regulations.
1.2 The following additional words and terms, when used within these regulations, shall have the following meaning unless the context clearly indicates otherwise:
“Direct Supervision “means oversight on the premises of a nursing home by a preceptor.
“Preceptor” means an individual who currently has an active Delaware Nursing Home Administrator license and is employed in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) or Assisted Living Facility (AL) and is approved by the Board to have oversight of an AIT candidate according to the rules of the AIT Program.
“Sponsoring Facility” means the nursing home facility at which candidates expect to conduct the majority of their AIT program, often their employer.
1.3 Licensees shall display their license in their office or other conspicuous place in their place of business or employment.
1.4 Upon receipt of satisfactory evidence that a license has been lost, mutilated, or destroyed, the Board may issue a duplicate license. The duplication fee is set by the Division of Professional Regulation (Division).
1.5 Licensee shall inform the Board of a change in address within 30 days.
2.1 Applications shall be made in writing on forms provided by the Board.
2.2 To obtain licensure, applicants must meet the educational and experience requirements and must pass the National Association of Boards (“NAB”) examination.
2.3 Applicants must obtain Board approval before they may take the NAB examination. To obtain Board approval, applicants must:
2.3.1 Submit satisfactory evidence of having met one of the educational requirements under Section 5209(a)(1) of Title 24 of the Delaware Code, and
2.3.2 Submit a plan to complete the Administrator-In-Training (“AIT”) program that corresponds with their education in accordance with regulation section 3.0, and
2.3.3 Identify the applicant’s preferred Preceptors.
2.4 If the Board is satisfied that the applicant has completed the requisite education and approves the applicant’s AIT plan and preferred Preceptors, the applicant shall be approved to begin their AIT program under the direct supervision of the approved Preceptors.
2.4.1 Approved applicants shall begin their AIT program immediately.
2.4.2 Applicants not approved by the Board may be given the opportunity to rectify deficiencies in their applications before denial of their application is proposed.
2.5 Applicants approved to take the examination will be granted licensure once the Board receives confirmation that the applicant has achieved a passing score of 75% or more on the National Association of Boards (“NAB”) examination.
2.5.1 Applicants who do not pass the first examination may retake the examination within the following three months after the date of the exam without further Board approval.
2.5.2 Applicants who do not pass the second examination may retake the examination within the following six months after the date of the exam without further Board approval.
2.5.3 Applicants who do not pass the third examination must obtain Board approval each time they wish to retake the examination. The Board will approve these applicants to retake the examination only after they complete 40 additional hours working under the direct supervision of a Delaware-licensed nursing home administrator in a skilled nursing facility previously approved by the Board.
3.1 Every Administrator-In-Training (AIT) program shall be approved by the Board and shall be conducted under the direct supervision of the Pre-Approved Preceptor(s). The start date and expiration date of the approved AIT program shall be printed on the AIT license. AIT Progress Reports must be submitted to the Board by the AIT every three (3) months for the duration of the AIT program. Supervised training of the AIT must continue for the entire duration of the AIT program, regardless of whether or not the AIT outline has been fulfilled.
3.2 AIT programs must be split between a skilled nursing facility (“SNF”) and an assisted living facility (”ALF”). If the Sponsoring Facility is an SNF, the Board will require that at least 10% of the program be completed in an ALF. If the Sponsoring Facility is an ALF, the Board will require that at least 25% of the program be completed in an SNF. The training for each subject of the program shall be conducted in the proper facility. Because the AIT program is split between an SNF and an ALF, a preceptor is required for each type of facility.
3.3 Its shall begin their program immediately after receiving notification of approval of their AIT plan and Preceptors.
3.4 Preceptors shall make themselves available to provide direction, observation, aid, training, and instruction to their AIT. Preceptors shall submit quarterly progress reports to the Board. AIT programs are expected to be an interactive process between the Preceptor and their AIT to ensure that the AIT fully experiences the nature and scope of a nursing home administrator’s responsibilities.
3.5 AIT programs are expected to provide applicants with experience that will establish their suitability and fitness to practice as a nursing home administrator and their ability to perform the essential functions of a nursing home administrator. Examples of essential functions are:
3.6 AIT programs must be completed within the allotted time, including any extensions granted by the Board; otherwise the AIT license expires and the individual must submit a new application for licensure as an AIT.
3.7 Extensions may be granted at the sole discretion of the Board upon written request by an AIT or a Preceptor. Requests for extensions must be submitted before the expiration of the AIT licensing certificate and must provide a detailed explanation of the reason an extension is needed.
4.1 Applicants must:
4.1.1 Submit a notarized statement listing all licensing jurisdictions in which a license was held, and
4.1.2 Cause a verification of licensure status to be submitted directly to the Board from all jurisdictions.
4.2 Determination of Substantial Similarity of Licensing Standards - The applicant must submit a copy of the laws and regulations governing licensure from the jurisdiction from which reciprocity is sought.
