Chapter 393-12 CHANGE OF STATUS
Any licensee who holds a current license and who is not practicing as a nursing home administrator may request the Board to place that license into an "inactive status" upon written application to the Board and payment of a non-refundable inactive status application fee. See fee schedule. The Board, in its sole discretion, may grant or deny the request for inactive status. Any licensee whose license is on inactive status may not engage in the practice of nursing home administration or serve as the administrator of record of a nursing home.
In order to reactivate an inactive license, submit the appropriate application, forms, and fee to the Board.
|(a)||If a license is inactive for twelve months or less, but not more than twenty four months, the applicant must submit forty (40) hours of CE obtained since the Board's last renewal period.|
|(b)||If a license is inactive for twenty four months, but not more than 36 months, eighty (80) hours of CE obtained since the Board's last renewal period must be submitted to the Board.|
|(c)||If the license has been inactive more than 36 months, the applicant must meet current requirements and either submit eighty (80) hours of CE since the Board's last renewal period, OR take and pass national exam.|
|(d)||If the inactive licensee holds an active license from the Georgia Board's approved state's list and has been employed for one year as a Nursing Home Administrator prior to the date of the application, then the applicant must submit an application, fee, and verification of an active, current license from the state or jurisdiction in which the license is held.|
