Licensed Nursing Home Administrators (LNHA) are required to complete 20 Continuing Education Credits (CE) per renewal period and only 10 self-study can count toward those CEs required for renewal.
Health Services Executives (HSE) are required to have an additional 4 CEs above and beyond the 20 required to renew the LNHA license, but HSEs may do all 4 of those CEs online,. They do not count toward the limit of 10 self-study CEs per renewal. If you are an HSE, it is possible to have 14 self-study CEs: 10 for your LNHA renewal and 4 for your HSE renewal.
There are two types of categories accepted:
- Self-Study - Non-traditional/not in classroom presentations (e.g., webinars, on-line courses, and independent study)
- Only (10) hours of Self-Study courses will be counted toward an LNHA’s annual license renewal.
- In person - traditional, in-classroom presentations
- An unlimited number of in person courses may be counted toward an LNHA’s annual license renewal.
