Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators

Leanne Duffy, Program Director

Consumer Protection is our Mission.

The Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators regulates and licenses nursing home administrators. The Board does not regulate assisted living administrators nor home health care providers. The mission of the Board is to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the people of Colorado by developing and maintaining rules and policies to ensure that only qualified persons are licensed to practice as nursing home administrators and that violators of the laws and rules regulating nursing home administration are sanctioned as appropriate. Board activities include licensing nursing home administrators, investigating complaints about the licensed and unlicensed practice of nursing home administration, disciplining those who violate the law and/or the Board’s Rules and make, amend, and adopt reasonable rules and regulations governing the conduct of nursing home administrators. This Board is made up of five members: 3 nursing home administrators and two public members.

New Flowcharts Showing Qualifications for NHA Licenses

We created flowcharts to show the qualifications for the different types of NHA licenses - check out the NHA Professionals page (click "Professionals" on the left menu).

We Changed Our Name!

The Division is now called the Division of Professions and Occupations, effective August 8, 2012. To help our consumers and licensees more readily locate and utilize our services, the legislature passed House Bill 12-1055 during the 2012 legislative session. Please note, the Division of Professions and Occupations will still be housed within the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Services the Division currently offers will remain the same.


Legislation passed during the Legislative Session impacts the Division of Professions and Occupations. Please review the program's Laws, Rules and Policies web page to learn of any changes due to legislation.
