BENHA Announces Open Board Seat for a Registered Nurse

The Minnesota Board of Examiners for Nursing Home Administrators (BENHA) announces the open appointment for one member actively engaged in the practice of professional nursing, licensed in Minnesota. 

The Registered Nurse position on the board holds a critical role in that they typically serve on the Standards of Practice Committee reviewing all complaints received by the board. As one of three blended provider and public board members on the committee, it is essential they understand the current regulatory environment. 

“This role is extremely important to set individual direction, to alter practice minimums through QAPI principles and to understand the critical partnership of the administrator and nursing team,” said Randy Snyder, Executive Director, BENHA.  

BENHA licenses nursing home administrators and sets educational minimum entry to practice standards, as well as investigates complaints and works with just culture principles to educate and improve administrator standards that result in quality services for Minnesota citizens.  

The board is comprised of nine members appointed by the Governor, as well as ex-officio members from the Minnesota Department of Health and Minnesota Department of Human Services. The nine members appointed have rotating board terms expiring in January of each year with the roster on the board website. Public Members serving as health licensing board volunteers are always in high demand. 

The Open Appointments process is initiated by completing an online filing with the Secretary of State's       office.  The electronic applications are forwarded to the Governor’s office for review and appointment.
