License Renewal

Information About Renewal Applications

Nursing Home Administrator licenses expire on July 31 of odd years (e.g., 2017, 2019).

Several weeks before the expiration date, a renewal notice will be mailed to the address on your record. This notice will explain how to access the online renewal application. To complete the online renewal application, you must use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.

Please keep your contact information in our records up-to-date so that notices we send will reach you.  To check and update your contact information online, click Change Contact Information


Renewing an Active License

To renew an active license, you will be asked to attest to completing the required continuing education (CE). Section 5.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations explains the CE requirements. Following the renewal, a percentage of licensees will be randomly selected for audit of their CE.


Renewing a Lapsed License

If you do not renew your license before the expiration date, your license will lapse. It is illegal to practice or hold yourself out as a Nursing Home Administrator in Delaware while your license is lapsed.

To resume practicing in Delaware, you must renew your license. You may submit a late renewal application for a period of one year after the expiration date. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. Even though you have a year to submit the late renewal application, this period is not a “grace period.” Do not resume practicing in Delaware until the license is actually renewed.

If you fail to renew the license by the end of the one-year period, it will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware after termination, you must reapply for licensure. To reapply, you must complete a new application, pay the processing fee and submit proof of 48 hours of CE. If approved, you will receive a new license number.
