SF 6 – Nursing Home Administrators Temporary Licenses
We Support This Bill.
Summary: AN ACT relating to professions and occupations; authorizing the board of nursing home administrators to issue temporary licenses for nursing home administrators as specified; making conforming amendments; requiring rulemaking; and providing for effective dates.
Why It Matters: Nursing homes play a vital role in our communities in terms of the population they serve and the population they employ - both of which are majority women. This bill would allow administrators, the majority of which are women, to be issued temporary licenses while they pursue permanent licensure. This measure not only allows access to administrative wages, but helps fill a shortage for nursing homes.
