NOTE: The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) licenses nursing home administrators.*

*If you are looking for information about how to become a licensed nursing home administrator, including the "Administrator-in-Training" (AIT) Program, please contact DOH Health Professions Quality Assurance at (360) 236-4700 – choose option #7 and someone will direct your call.

WAC 246-843-130(4) requires that licensed nursing home administrators attend an approved course on laws relating to nursing homes in Washington, within 180 days of becoming licensed.

The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) licenses nursing homes in the state of Washington.  DOH has coordinated with DSHS Residential Care Services to provide a 1-day state law course that meets the WAC 246-843-130(4) requirements for continuing education. DSHS typically holds these classes 3-4 times per year in Lacey, Washington.  Currently, there is no charge for this class.

ONLY licensed nursing home administrators, or those currently participating in the DOH "Administrator-in-Training" (AIT) program should plan to attend.

This schedule is subject to change
