In recent years a national debate has focused on the licensure of nursing home administrators. Congress mandated licensure goals in 1970, but recently has considered eliminating the requirement that states license nursing home administrators. Data showing trends during 1977-1987 in education, internship, professional examinations, and reciprocity requirements are evaluated in this paper, and three recommendations for national standards are made.
