Obtain Your License

The LTC series of courses meets Minnesota licensure requirements. Minnesota licensure is administered by the Board of Examiners for Nursing Home Administrators. It requires approved coursework, a practicum, passing the national exam, and passing a state exam. These courses may also meet the requirements of other states: check individual state licensure policies.
