Program Accreditation and State Licensure
Effective August 31, 2024 the MA in Health and Human Services Administration program will no longer be accredited by the MN Board of Executives for Long Term Services and Supports (BELTSS) accreditation as meeting state educational requirements for Nursing Home Administrator (NHA) licensure in Minnesota. Due to this, we will no longer be accepting new students into the Minnesota licensure pathway track of the MA HHSA program after the Fall 2022 semester.
