License Renewal

Information About Renewals

Nursing Home Administrator licenses expire on July 31 of odd years (e.g., 2019, 2021).

A few months before the expiration date of your license, a renewal notice will be sent to the email address on the record. This notice will explain how to access your online renewal application in DELPROS, our online portal. To complete the online renewal application, you must log in to your account, answer questions, and use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.

All notices about professional licenses, such as renewal and audit notices, are sent by email only. It is important to keep your contact information up-to-date so that all the notices we send reach you. To check and update your contact information online, click on Manage Profile link in DELPROS.

Renewing an Active License

An active license must be renewed in DELPROS every two years before the expiration date. During renewal, you are asked to attest that you have completed the required continuing education units (CEs).

For detailed information about CE and audit requirements, see the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage or see Section 5.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.   After the renewal, a percentage of licensees will be randomly selected for audit of their CE.

Renewing an Expired License

If you do not renew your license before the expiration date, your license will expire. It is illegal to practice in Delaware while your license is expired.

You may submit a late renewal application up to one year after the expiration date in DELPROS. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. Even though you can submit a late renewal application, do not resume practicing until your license is actually renewed to active status. The late period is not a “grace period.”

If you fail to renew within one year, the license will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware, you must apply in DELPROS as a new applicant.

Inactive and Reactivating Licenses

If you hold an active license but are not practicing in Delaware, you may request to place your license in inactive status by submitting a Service Request in DELPROS. You must request inactive status before your late renewal period ends (July 31 of even years). You cannot practice in Delaware while your license is in inactive status. Your license may remain in inactive status for up to three years.

To resume practicing in Delaware during the three-year period, you must reactivate your license by submitting a Service Request in DELPROS  along with proof of completion of twenty-four units of CE for each annual period of inactive status. All of the required continuing education units must have been completed within the twelve-month period immediately preceding the request for reactivation.  For more information, see Section 7.5.2 and 5.0 in the Board’s Rules and Regulations.

If you fail to reactivate during the three-year period, your license will terminate. If you wish to resume practicing after your license has terminated, you must reapply in DELPROS as a new applicant.
