The Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing staffs the nursing home administrator program. The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development adopts regulations to carry out laws governing nursing home administrators in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws.
For information on Assisted Living Homes or Facilities, please visit the State of Alaska Department of Health & Social Services website.
Alaska Statutes are passed by the legislature. Regulations (also called the Alaska Administrative Code) are rules adopted by the department to implement, interpret, and make specific the statutes. Both statutes and regulations have the force of law.
AS 08.70 and regulations 12 AAC 46 specifically apply to nursing home administrators. AS 08.01 - 08.03 and regulations 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.
Proposed regulations are advertised in Alaska newspapers and we invite public comment on them. If you would like to receive notice of proposed regulations, please write to the regulations specialist and request that your name be added to the Nursing Home Administrators interested parties list. Please advise us if you move or wish your name removed from the mailing list.
National organizations may provide information on the regulation of nursing home administrators in other states.
