Welcome to the State of California 

Nursing Home Administrator Program

The Nursing Home Administrator Program (NHAP) is governed by the Health and Safety Code Sections 1416 through 1416.84 and must assure that the health, safety, security, and rights of the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) and Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) residents are safeguarded by setting standards for licensing of Nursing Home Administrators (NHAs), administering a training program for NHAs, testing and issuing licenses, and administering an enforcement program for disciplinary action against NHAs.

NHAP continues to strive for excellence in ensuring that California Nursing Homes are managed by qualified professional NHAs.
