The NAB is pleased to announce that the Texas Health and Human Service Commission has updated their administrative code to accept the HSE qualification as meeting the requirements to become a licensed Nursing Facility Administrator in Texas. The state regulatory exam will still be required to become licensed in Texas. Candidates who are HSE qualified can request a transfer of their qualification to the Texas board.

We are excited to launch our public directory of HSE Qualified Administrators. The directory can sort by individual name, city and/or state. In order to view all qualified HSEs, please hit the blue "Filter" button. Again, NAB congratulates all qualified Health Service Executives.

The Health Services Executive ™ (HSE) qualification, a broad-based credential which will allow our most talented administrators to practice along the continuum of health services and supports while enjoying portability of their HSE license. This is not in place of an NHA license, rather in addition to a state issued NHA license. NAB offers two distinct qualifying pathways: The Career Pathway and The Education Pathway. Please choose one of the pathways to review qualifications needed to apply for the Health Service Executive ™ (HSE).
To begin the HSE Application you will need to create a NAB member account prior to accessing the NABVerify system.

Please note you do not need to have a paid membership in NAB to submit an HSE™ application. Additionally, applications SHOULD be submitted once all information has been completed by the applicant. Items such as transcripts, test scores, etc. will be loaded AFTER the application has been submitted. Please download the Health Services Executive ™Application Handbook for more information on applying for the HSE.
