Long Term Care Administration

Online (Lincoln Campus)

Types of Jobs Available

  • Nursing home administrator
  • Assisted living administrator
  • Leadership role in long term care

Program Overview

The need for long-term care services is expected to increase dramatically as the U.S. population ages. This program is designed to prepare students for administrative roles in either nursing facility or assisted living settings. Core courses are combined with business and general education courses to prepare students for employment, licensure/approval or transfer to a four-year college or university.

This Associate of Applied Science degree meets the education requirements for licensure as a Nursing Home Administrator and exceeds the education requirements for approval as an Assisted Living Administrator in the State of Nebraska. Additional requirements must be met in order to obtain a Nursing Home Administrator license. This includes completion of a state approved “administrator-in-training” or “mentoring program” and passing a national licensing examination. These are usually completed after graduation and are not part of this program.

Education and training requirements vary from state to state and it is advisable to check the specific requirements for your state before beginning this or any program of study. In states that require additional formal education, individual courses from this degree program are often accepted as transfer credits.

This program is offered fully on-line and is one of the few programs of its kind in the United States that offers an Associate of Applied Science degree. General education and business courses may be taken on-line or in a traditional classroom setting. Developed with input from many successful long term care professionals, this degree provides a strong foundation for persons who seek career advancement in long term care administration.
