When the controlling persons of a nursing home designate an acting nursing home administrator under Minnesota Statutes, section 144A.27, the designee must secure an acting administrator's permit within 30 days of the termination of the previous licensed administrator. The board shall issue a permit to serve a facility as an acting administrator for up to six months from the termination of the facility's previous licensed administrator to an individual who meets the qualifications specified in subpart 2. A permit to serve a facility as an acting administrator is valid only for the holder's work with that facility and shall not be transferable to another facility. A permit to serve as acting administrator is not renewable beyond the six months for which it was issued. The board may issue a second permit to serve a facility as an acting administrator for up to six months from the expiration of the original acting administrator permit when the board finds the second permit to be in the best interests of the public. In no event shall the board issue successive permits for a total duration of longer than one year.
An applicant for a permit to serve a facility as an acting nursing home administrator must furnish satisfactory evidence that the applicant:
has graduated from high school or holds a commissioner of education-selected high school equivalency certification or has completed an associate or higher degree from an accredited postsecondary institution;
is at least 21 years of age;
has experience in the management of a nursing home or related facility or program or has completed a majority of the courses required for licensure under part 6400.6500;
is in good standing in each jurisdiction from which the applicant has ever received a nursing facility administrator license.
