Online applications are now available for Administrators,

Effective June 1, 2018, the Virginia State Board of Long-Term Care Administrators will be going to an online license verification system using our agency's License Lookup feature.  While applicants or licensees may request paper or pdf copies of license verifications as needed or required, the online resource will serve as the official hard copy and proof of licensure for all individuals and establishments licensed by the Virginia Department of Health Professions. License Lookup is updated in real time and available 24/7 to anyone seeking public licensure information on healthcare practitioners in Virginia.

News from NAB (National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator Boards)

Please be advised that NAB has moved its office. Effective January 11, 2018, NAB’s address is:

1120 20th Street, NW, Suite 750
Washington, DC 20036-3441

NAB Introduces NABVerify, the home of NAB’s Continuing Education (CE) Registry service as well as the Health Services ExecutiveTM (HSE) application.

NAB is excited to share two new products for licensees: The CE Registry, a free CE tracking system, and the Health Services Executive (HSE) qualification. For more information on these new products, click here.

Attention Exam Candidates and Prospective Examinees: In July 2017, NAB transitioned its examinations to a new structure: examinees will need to pass a 100-item Core of Knowledge exam and a 50-item line of service exam.

NAB has released a Handbook for Exam Candidates that reflects the new exam structure. There is now a single handbook, covering the core exam and all line of service exam modules, instead of two separate handbooks covering NHA and RCAL (Assisted Living). The new handbook can be accessed here on NAB’s website.

AIT and Preceptor Training Programs Launched by NAB and ACHCA

On November 21, 2016, the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) and the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) introduced two new training programs:  the Administrator-in-Training (AIT) Program and the Preceptor Program.  Click here to read the press release from NAB.

Voluntary Preceptor Directory

The Board understands that finding a licensed Preceptor can be difficult for someone trying to complete the Administrator in Training Program. Due to privacy laws, we are unable to provide contact information without the permission of the licensee. Below is a list of licensed Preceptors who volunteered to list their information in a public directory.

Please note that this information is only as current as the licensee provides to the board. Their contact information may change without notifying the board. The Preceptor may also have reasons for not being able to Precept during the time you are requesting.
