The Licensed Nursing Home Administrator (LNHA) in a skilled nursing center or the Administrator/Manager in an assisted living community is responsible for overseeing daily operations and management of the entire facility to ensure it complies with all state and federal surveys requirements. Administrators are also responsible for census development, resident/patient care, positive employee relations, and implementing facility programs.
Education & Experience:
Administrators must obtain at least a bachelor’s degree. Some administrator positions require an advanced degree in a related field. After submitting an application to the Board of Executives of Long-Term Services and Supports (BELTSS) and completing a six to nine-month Administrator-in-Training (AIT) or internship experience in a nursing facility, an AIT must then complete the Core of Knowledge and pass the licensing exam. Scholarships for individuals pursuing educational training for Administrator licensure are available.
