Long-Term Care Administration


Long-Term Care (LTC) Administration is a special option available for students majoring in Gerontology. The program combines a major in gerontology with coursework in areas such as accounting, economics, and management. This specialization prepares students to sit for both the state (Ohio) and federal nursing home administrator’s licensure examinations.

The final component of the program is the practicum experience, which blends theory from the classroom with practical experience in an agency serving older adults. Students specializing in LTC administration are required to complete an 800 hour Administrator-in-Training (AIT) practicum within an Ohio long-term care facility under the direct supervision of a licensed nursing home administrator.

The long-term care administration specialization is accredited by the National Association of Long-Term Care Administrator Board (NAB).
