Individualized coursework may include instruction in social and clinical aspects of aging, health care delivery systems, long-term care administration, aging policy and government programs, ethics, business management, financial management, human resource management, marketing and applicable laws and regulations. Additionally, the Nursing Home Administration graduate certificate from Kent State University prepares graduates for the national and state licensure examinations required in the State of Ohio to become a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator (LNHA).
Once licensed, individuals are qualified to lead organizations in the field of long-term care services and supports. It is particularly appropriate for graduate students from any discipline who are interested in long-term care, but also for individuals currently working in the long-term care field who wish to advance their career as an executive of long-term care services and supports.
Students should be able to complete the certificate within one academic year or three semesters. The certificate includes an internship as required by the State of Ohio in a skilled nursing facility.
