Continuing Education for Nursing Home Administrator Licensure Renewal

We urge you NOT to renew your license unless you have the required CEUs from the approved sources AND have the documentation to prove it. Read the law carefully (appears below). If you do not have the required CEUs, we urge you to seek legal counsel ASAP from someone who is familiar in dealing with the State CT Department of Public Health.

SEE Sec. 19a-515. (Formerly Sec. 19-596). License renewal. Continuing education requirement.

CT Chapter Event/Seminar Policy:

The sending of a Registration Form for any Chapter event/seminar is a binding commitment for payment.  Substitutions are allowed.
Anyone registering for a Chapter event/seminar with a Member of the Connecticut Chapter of ACHCA (same facility; same check) does so at the Member rate.
Anyone arriving more than twenty (20) minutes after the scheduled start time of a event/seminar shall not be eligible for Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) for that event/seminar. 
Anyone leaving before the conclusion of a event/seminar shall not be eligible for Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) for that event/seminar.
Cancellation requests received by the President of the Chapter or Chapter Event/Seminar Contact Person (mail; telephone; fax or e-mail) more than four (4) days before the event/seminar will receive a full refund.
SURVEY GUARANTEE:  If, on the day of the event/seminar, a facility is visited by a Federal, State or local inspector/surveyor, a full refund will be issued for all persons from that facility who do not attend the event/seminar upon notification of the President of the Chapter or Chapter Event/Seminar Contact Person.

The Connecticut Chapter of the American College of Health Care Administrators deems approved for continuing education credit for Connecticut all events and/or seminars presented by 1) the American College of Health Care Administrators, 2) State Chapters of the American College of Health Care Administrators and 3) the New England Alliance for which continuing education credit is offered.

It is the responsibility of each individual Nursing Home Administrator to obtain and maintain CEU documentation as per State Statute.

Questions?  Please contact the Chapter President.

Miscalculated on your CEUs and need some in a hurry for your license renewal? We have some suggestions.

First, check with CT Chapter of the ACHCA, the two trade associations (CAHCF and LeadingAge CT) and the Association of Long-Term Care Financial Managers (ALTCFM), to see if anything local is coming up. If information is not available on their websites, call them.

Secondly, your fallback position is CEUs on-line and/or home-study, but remember, these must be from approved sources. Consider the following:
