Continuing Education

Twenty (20) hours of annual continuing education is required to maintain a license to practice as a Nursing Home Administrator in Idaho. 

Rule 200.01 reads, “In order to be credited toward the educational requirements of the Act, a seminar or course of study must be relevant to nursing home administration as determined by the Board and sponsored by accredited universities or colleges, State or National health related associations, and/or approved by NCERS (National Continuing Education Review Service).”

Questions about a course's relevance to nursing home administration may be addressed in writing to the Board.  

CE providers may obtain Board approval by submitting a completed Continued Education Approval Form

The Board conducts annual audits to insure compliance with the continuing education requirements.  Audits may be initiated anytime after you renew your license.  By signing your renewal application, and answering "Yes" to the question that you have met the continuing education requirements, you are certifying to the Board that you have already obtained proof of having completed the required continuing education. 

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET MET THE CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT, DO NOT SUBMIT A RENEWAL APPLICATION INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE.  Submitting a fraudulent application for licensure is grounds for discipline against your license

If you are audited, you must submit a listing of all continuing education courses completed during the previous year AND proof of attendance documentation for each course. 

Failure to submit the required documentation may result in the Board taking disciplinary action against your license. 

You should review the the Board rules regarding continuing education before signing up for any continuing education offerings.
