The Nursing Home Administration series is made up of 4 units (units 1, 2, 3 and 4) which are bundled into this Nursing Home Administration series. Bundling the four required units allows us to offer you a payment plan for the series.
The role of the nursing home administrator is to manage the day-to-day operations of a nursing home. This is accomplished through planning and maintaining standards of care, supervising others, and providing leadership to all departments in the nursing home. By participating in this program, you will prepare yourself for the latest licensure examination topics while also prepare yourself for the complexities of becoming a nursing home administrator. The instructors share their expertise and experiences with you to help you immediately apply what you learn. We invite you to consider attending this highly respected program.
The Nursing Home Administrator program meets the State of Michigan's educational requirements for licensure. Upon successful completion of the program, you may apply for a license. The State of Michigan will match your application to the education verification that we submit directly to the State upon successful completion of this program and all our requirements. You will then be eligible to take the CORE and LOS examinations administered through the National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB). The State of Michigan will verify that you passed the examinations and met all other requirements before issuing you a license. Please go to the LARA site for instructions on applying for your license. Link to LARA: https://www.michigan.gov/lara/0,4601,7-154-89334_72600_92411---,00.html
Please note: This program is for MI licensing only. Some participants that live near the Michigan border do attend and then work in a MI facility once licensed.
“One my favorite things about this program is working with the instructors. They are all from the industry, and they are currently working in their respective fields. Because of this, our instructors are able to bring a great wealth of knowledge to the students through discussion of current situations and how they have handled things in the past. They also give the students a really good idea of what the job will entail and how to be successful as a Nursing Home Administrator.”
– Marcie Stowell, Program Director

HOW TO REGISTER
You can register right on our website using the Registration button at the top of this page. This is a non-credit program, so you do not need to apply to Michigan State University as a student.
This program is composed of four units. You can start with any unit. To complete the entire program, you will need to register for and attend all four units. You may sign up for one unit at time or you may register for all 4 units at the same time. You do not need to start with Unit 1. But the units do need to be taken in order. You can start the program with the next available unit. For example, you could start with Unit 3 and then take Units 4, 1 and 2 in that order.
Please note that we cannot currently accept hours completed at another institution.
