A change in Nurse Administrator1 must be reported to the ACEN no later than one (1) month after the permanent or interim nurse administrator assumes duties/responsibilities.
You will also want to familiarize yourself with the substantive change policy, Policy #14. For more resources related to substantive change, please visit the Reporting Substantive Change page of the ACEN website or contact the Coordinator of Substantive Change.
