Every individual who holds a valid license as a nursing home administrator issued by the board shall annually apply to the board on or before June 1 for renewal of the individual's license and shall report any information pertinent to continued licensure requested by the board on forms provided for that purpose. The applicant shall submit evidence satisfactory to the board and subject to audit under part 6400.6800, subpart 3, that during the annual period immediately preceding the renewal application the licensee has complied with the rules of the board and completed continuing education requirements for license renewal.
Upon making an application for license renewal, the licensee shall pay the annual fee as specified under part 6400.6970. If submitting CE credits which include clock hours for workshops, seminars, institutes, or home study courses which have not been preapproved by the board, the licensee shall also pay a fee for review of clock hours based upon the total number of nonpreapproved clock hours being submitted for CE credit to meet renewal requirements. If the application for renewal has not been received by June 30 of each year, the license shall lapse and the holder of a lapsed license shall be subject to the reinstatement procedure and late renewal fees.
Pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, section 326.56, a licensee who is in active military service, as defined in Minnesota Statutes, section 190.05, for the armed forces of the United States or is employed outside the United States in employment that is essential to the prosecution of any war or the national defense, as defined in Minnesota Statutes, section 326.56, and whose license was in effect at the time of entry into the armed forces or engagement in employment outside the United States, is not obligated to renew licensure. The board must be notified in writing by the licensee regarding the qualifications for this exemption. The exemption ceases six months after discharge from active service or termination of the aforementioned employment. A license renewal notice shall be sent to the licensee at the time that a license renewal notice would normally be sent to the licensee. The licensee may be requested to reconfirm exempt status. If the licensee no longer qualifies for the exemption, the requirements for license renewal must be met.
