Graduate Long-Term Care Specialization
NOW OFFERED ONLINE
The Gerontology Program is pleased to announce the that the long-term care (LTC) specialization for the Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Gerontology (MSIG) program is now offered online via eCampus.
Students who complete this specialization are able to sit for the Ohio and federal nursing home administration licensure exams.
The degree curriculum for the MSIG LTC program requires a minimum of 36 semester hours beyond the undergraduate degree, and includes the NAB-required Administrator in Training (AIT/internship) hours.
The degree requirements are such that students could finish the degree in four semesters of full-time study, and the program is configured to allow students to matriculate as part-time students over a period of two years. Although most students will be able to complete the required coursework within one and a half to two years, the AIT may extend the time required to obtain the degree. The MSIG LTC program includes coursework from Gerontology, Long-term Care Administration, and Management and Finance.
Individuals completing their Administrator in Training (AIT) must work a minimum of 35 hours/week at their approved site. Students complete 1000 hours as required by state and federal licensure and regulatory agencies such as BELTSS, NAB, and CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid). Interns must be placed in an approved skilled nursing facility under the supervision of an approved Licensed Nursing Home Administrator.
