    ​Non-licensed Persons

    House Bill 145, Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators—Non-licensed Persons–Provisional Licensure, was passed by the House on February 24, 2017 and was passed by the Senate on March 29, 2017.  It was signed into law by Governor Hogan on April 11, 2017 and will officially become effective as State Law on October 1, 2017.  You may access all details on this legislation at the following link: Non-licensed Persons – Provisional License

    Criminal History Records Checks - Required​​​

    Per § 9-302.1 of the Annotated Code of Maryland, you must undergo a criminal history records check in order to be granted a Long-Term Care​​ Administrator License by the Board, and this is inclusive of Provisional ​Licenses.  Current licensees who have not yet had a criminal history records check done, must undergo this required screening one time (as a part of their renewal process). 
    If an applicant is currently licensed by another State of Maryland Health Occupations board and has previously undergone a criminal history records check with that board, he/she is responsible for providing this Board with a verifiable copy of this criminal history records check.  Until the Board Office receives notification of your criminal history records check, you will not be able to receive your license.  
    Administrator-in-training and Endorsement applicants, please have your criminal history records check completed by the application deadline that corresponds to your intended Credentials Committee Meeting date.


    When you are preparing to have your criminal background check processed, please e-mail to mdh.bltca@maryland.gov​ to request the Board's authorization number and its 'Originating Agency Identifier' number ('ORI' number).
    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Board Office at 410-764-4750 or by email at mdh.bltca@maryland.gov
    You will need these two numbers to proceed with your background check being processed.  The Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services website (which contains a detailed list of various processing locations throughout the state) is as follows: http://dpscs.maryland.gov/publicservs/fingerprint.shtml

    For your convenience, the Criminal History Livescan Pre-Registration Application will be available on the Board's website at the “Forms” section under Quick Links for you to print out to take with you for processing.
