Elderly and younger hands

Leading an Aging Society

There is a critical need for skilled and compassionate professionals to serve the state’s expanding aging population. This statewide challenge offers a unique opportunity for individuals interested in leadership within a health care profession: nursing home administration. The U of M’s Long Term Care (LTC) administration program is an affordable, flexible option for working adults. These LTC courses give students the education to support Minnesota licensure as long term care (nursing home) administrators. Complete your coursework in one year, and be on the fast track to getting your license and landing a rewarding job.

Program Overview

Complete Your Coursework in a Year

Courses are designed with working professionals in mind, formatted in blended online/in-person, single-day courses. A total of ten courses are offered, each taught by industry experts who deliver applied education, each designed to meet licensure requirements. Courses are intended to prepare students to step into leadership roles after earning their license through the state. There is no application process for this coursework: simply enroll in your first course.

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.
