About This Course

Long-term care organizations provide housing, services, and supports to older adults and others with complex medical and health care needs. Part health care facility and part home, skilled nursing facilities need administrators with a core understanding of gerontology and geriatrics. This course is designed to provide an overview of the biological, psychological, and sociological aspects of aging and, in turn, how long-term care responds to needs through services and supports. This course meets national and state requirements for licensure as a nursing home administrator.

Prerequisites: None.
