Practicum/Field Experience


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) hoursĀ in an approved skilled nursing facility under the supervision of an approved Licensed Nursing Home Administrator. The program is Health Services Executive (HSE) approved so after graduation, students are eligible to take the Ohio and federal licensure exams for Assisted Living, Nursing Home, and Home and Community-Based Services.

The MSIG LTC program at BGSU is a flexible, professional degree that can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis through online classes. The coursework is 100% online to provide flexibility for students. 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.
