RULES. (1) It shall be the functions and duties of such board to:
    (a)  Develop, impose, and enforce standards consistent with this act which
    shall be met by individuals in order to receive and retain a license as a
    nursing home administrator which standard shall be designed to insure that

    field of institutional administration, are qualified to serve as nursing
    home administrators;
    (b)  Develop and apply appropriate techniques, including examinations and
    investigations, for determining whether an individual meets such
    standards;
    (c)  Issue licenses to individuals determined, after application of such
    techniques,  to meet such standards, and revoke or suspend licenses
    previously issued by the board in any case where the individual holding
    any such license is determined substantially to have failed to conform to
    the requirements of such standards;
    (d)  Establish and carry out procedures designated to insure that
    individuals licensed as nursing home administrators will, during any
    period that they serve as such, comply with the requirements of such
    standards;

    charge or complaint filed with the board charging that any individual
    licensed as a nursing home administrator has failed to comply with the
    requirements of such standards;
    (f)  Conduct a continuing study and investigation of administrators of
    nursing homes within the state with a view to the improvement of the

    to administrators of nursing homes who have been licensed as such;

designated by such board, acting in an official capacity, shall have powers

conduct of its proceedings but any determinations made shall be founded upon
sufficient legal evidence to sustain them.
    (3)  The board shall also have the authority to make rules not
inconsistent with law as may be necessary for the proper performance of its

to meet the requirements set forth in section 1908 of the "social security
act," the federal rules promulgated thereunder, and other pertinent federal
requirements.
