(a) Every individual who holds a valid license as a nursing home administrator issued by the board under subsection (a) of section 81 shall immediately upon issuance thereof be deemed registered with the board and be issued a certificate of registration. Thereafter, such individual shall biennially be required to apply to the board for a new certificate of registration and report any facts requested by the board on forms provided for such purpose.
(b) Upon making an application for a new certificate of registration such individual shall pay a biennial registration fee established by the board by regulation, and, at the same time shall submit evidence satisfactory to the board that during the biennial period immediately preceding such application for registration he has attended a board approved continuation education program or course of study of not less than twenty-four hours as provided in the rules and regulations of the board.
(d) The license of a nursing home administrator who fails to comply with the provisions of this section, and who continues to act as a nursing home administrator, may be suspended or revoked by the board. The right of appeal from the decision of the board shall be in accordance with the act of June 4, 1945 (P.L. 1388),2 known as the “Administrative Agency Law.”
(e) A nursing home administrator who has been duly licensed and registered in this Commonwealth whose license shall not have been revoked or suspended, and whose registration has expired because he shall have temporarily abandoned the practice of nursing home administration, or shall have removed from the Commonwealth, or for such other reason, may register within the Commonwealth upon complying with the provisions of this section for registration, and also, filing with the board his affidavit of such facts.
(f) Only an individual who has qualified as a licensed and registered nursing home administrator, and who holds a valid current registration certificate pursuant to the provisions of this section for the current biennial registration period, shall have the right and the privilege of using the title “Nursing Home Administrator,” and have the right and privilege of using the abbreviation “N.H.A.” after his name. No other person shall use or shall be designated by such title or such abbreviation or any other words, letters, sign, card or device tending to, or intended to indicate that such person is a licensed and registered nursing home administrator.
