Course Objectives:

The purpose of the Assisted Living Administrator Certificate Program is:

  • To recognize that the conventional management of a nursing home or hospital is very different from the management of assisted living communities, and therefore, those methods of management are unlikely to produce the appropriate services necessary in the assisted living environment.
  • To challenge the administrators of assisted living communities to take the basic management skills they have learned and adapt them to the assisted living field.
  • To look for innovative methods and management models that will increase staff efficiency, contain costs, improve the quality of services, exceed both state and local regulations, and most of all, serve the assisted living resident.

Course Approvals:

  • This educational offering is recommended by the National Continuing Education Review Service (NCERS) of the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) as a preparatory course for the RCAL Exam.
  • Nebraska Dept. of Health and Human Services, Licensure Unit, Division of Public Health
