Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 246-843-990 Nursing home administrator fees and renewal cycle. The department of health (department) is opening this rule to establish a retired active status fee if that licensure status is first adopted by the board of nursing home administrators (board) in separate rule making.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 43.70.250, 18.52.025, and 18.130.250.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department will only establish a fee after the board has adopted a rule to establish a retired active status. The board is considering adding a retired active status to allow nursing home administrators to maintain their credential and practice in a limited way at a reduced cost. The department will rescind this proposal should the board decide not to allow for this licensure status.
Process for Developing New Rule: Collaborative rule making.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Kendra Pitzler, P.O. Box 47852, Olympia, WA 98504-7852, phone 360-236-4723, fax 360-236-2901, TTY 711, email, website
