The Long-Term Health Care Administration program at Ohio University is accredited by the National Association of Boards of Examiners of Long-Term Care Administrators (NAB). The curriculum focuses on courses including gerontology, nursing facility and assisted-living regulations, accounting, reimbursement, marketing, health policy, law and human resource management. A gerontology certificate is earned in conjunction with the Bachelor of Science in Health (BSH), and students can easily complete a double major in Health Services Administration and Long-Term Care Administration.

Opportunities Upon Graduation 
Professional licensure is required in most states to operate a nursing facility. Therefore, students should be prepared to sit for federal and state boards upon completion of the degree requirement. The Long-Term Health Care Administration option fulfills the academic preparation necessary for graduates to qualify to take the National Board through the National Association of Board Examiners of Long-Term Care Administrators. Students may decide to prepare for licensure boards in other states. Graduates of Ohio University’s Long-Term Care Administration program have historically been successful in the profession. Many are recruited by national and regional companies for administration and management positions.
