Observations For Licenses/Certifications When Prepping Personnel Files

  • Please make sure every required license and certification for a position is listed on the employee profile in the HR Competency Tracking System so it can be tracked and expiration dates can be met.

  • While many files did contain the required license verification printout, the printout date was NOT ALWAYS completed prior to the last expiration of the license.

Observations for Licenses/Certifications

  • Some staff have multiple licenses listed on the Board website, such as RN, NP, and Public Health Nurse. Please print them all for the files!

  • The only acceptable license verification is the timely printout from the Board website.

    • Copies of licenses cannot replace the verification printout from the Board website. They can be tampered with easily.

    • Late printouts that are past the license expiration date will not pass a surveyor’s inspection. It tells them we let someone work without verifying if a license is valid.

  • Education degrees – Documented on JDs

Department-wide Responsibilities for Licenses

  • The HR Chapter of the licensing standards is not the Human Resource Department Chapter.

  • It’s a chapter about the qualifications of the people in our organization; the “human” resources of every dept.

  • Every dept./clinic is responsible for the requirements of their staff (the “human” resources), so their areas remain successful, productive and in compliance.

  • There are over 5,000 licensed staff members. Many with multiple credentials.

  • Therefore, license verifications are completed in the department by a designated person or people and must be a priority when it comes to meeting the expiration deadlines.

  • Your HR team and the HR Tracking System are your support network.
