The Nursing Home Administrators Board is included in Senate Bill 107,
OHLA Professions, which aims to make specific changes in state law for five OHLA professions, including nursing home administrators.
SB 107, if passed in this year's Oregon Legislative Assembly, would eliminate the phrase "without examination" for applicants for licensure through reciprocity.
The statutory change would allow the board to determine if an examination is necessary for licensure applicants through reciprocity.
Licensure through reciprocity is one of five licensure pathways for nursing home administrators in Oregon. Reciprocity allows nursing home administrators licensed in another state or US territory with licensing requirements at least equivalent to Oregon requirements to become licensed in Oregon, if they have no current or pending disciplinary action.
