About the course
The role of the nursing home administrator is to manage the day-to-day operations of a nursing home. This is accomplished through planning and maintaining standards of care, supervising others, and providing leadership to all departments in the nursing home. By participating in this program, you will prepare yourself for the latest licensure examination topics while also prepare yourself for the complexities of becoming a nursing home administrator. The instructors share their expertise and experiences with you to help you immediately apply what you learn. We invite you to consider attending this highly respected program.
Full completion of the Nursing Home Administrator program will meet the educational requirements to allow participants to apply for the State of Michigan’s educational examination for licensure. Upon successful completion of the program, you may apply for a license. The State of Michigan will match your application to the education verification that we submit directly to the State upon successful completion of this program and all our requirements. You will then be eligible to take the CORE and LOS examinations administered through the National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB). The State of Michigan will verify that you passed the examinations and met all other requirements before issuing you a license. Please go to the LARA site for instructions on applying for your license. Please note: This program is for Michigan licensing only. Some participants near the Michigan state line have attended this program and subsequently worked in Michigan facilities once licensed.
Classes run from 9:00am – 4:00pm each Saturday.
