Program Overview

The long-term 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.

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.
