Long Term Care Administration
About the Program
The mission of the Long-Term Care Administration program is to provide students with the academic foundation to be successful in the health care field. Graduates of the four-year program receive a Bachelor of Science in Health (BSH). The curriculum covers topics such as gerontology, nursing facility and assisted-living regulations, accounting, reimbursement, marketing, health policy, law and human resource management.
The Long Term Care Administration program prepares students for a multifaceted profession that focuses on skilled nursing, assisted living and continuing-care retirement communities. Ohio University’s Long-Term Care Administration program is accredited by the National Association of Boards of Examiners of Long-Term Care Administrators (NAB). Professional licensure is required in most states to operate a nursing facility, so students should be prepared to sit for national and state board exams after completing degree requirements. The program offers graduates the academic preparation necessary to sit for the licensing exams of the Ohio Department of Health Board of Examiners for Long-Term Care Administrators, as well as the National Association of Board Examiners for Long-Term Care Administrators.
