State Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators

The Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs (BPOA) received reports that a person pretending to be from the State Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators (Board) is calling licensees about the status of their license.  The scammer asks for credit card information.  Persons who give their credit card information may not only lose their money, but also can become a victim of identity theft.

Licensees are urged to avoid becoming a victim of credit card fraud or identity theft:

  • BPOA and/or Board will NOT call licensees asking for payment over the phone.

  • If you get a text message or call asking for your credit card information, hang up.

  • Do NOT give your personal or financial information over the phone.

  • If you feel that you are a victim of any type of scam, you should immediately notify your local or state police.

 
 
The State Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators, through the licensure and registration of nursing home administrators, insures that such individuals are suitable and qualified to serve in such positions.  The Board issues, suspends and revokes registrations and licenses to practice nursing home administration.  In addition, the Board supervises nursing home administrators to insure that they are complying with licensure and registration requirements and investigates complaints made against nursing home administrators.  The Board develops standards of professional conduct in order to maintain a high level of integrity and performance in the practice of nursing home administration.
 
 
Please note that neither the Board/Commission, nor its staff or counsel, are permitted to provide legal advice or advisory opinions, including interpretations of the law or regulations, or any indication as to how the Board would vote on any given case or scenario.  You are invited to contact a private attorney or professional organization for advice or guidance.
