2020 State Examinations

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are constantly evaluating our options to administer the nursing home administrator state examination to best serve the public in the safest manner possible.  We have resumed posting examination dates, as well as registration deadlines in the table below. While we will strive to hold the examinations on the dates we have scheduled, these dates will be subject to change if it is the best interest of public safety. We will continue to have limited seating that is assigned on a first-come first-serve basis and in compliance with social distancing requirements.  Also, in order to provide as much advance notice as possible, applicants will receive a confirmation letter in the mail and a confirmation e‑mail from the exam coordinator.
