Recommendations of RAP on qualifications for licensure
Action 5471
General Information
Action Summary The Board intends to amend its regulations to clarify and enhance training and supervision requirements for prospective nursing home and assisted living facility administrators receiving pre-licensure training in an Administrator-in-Training (AIT) program. The Board intends to establish an additional pathway for individuals to qualify for AIT training in the assisted living setting and to strengthen the current requirement for college or university coursework to include coursework in business and/or human services. The Board will consider requiring an 80-hour training course that is based upon curriculum standards established by NAB for both nursing home and assisted living AITs, with those training hours to count toward total AIT hours. The Board intends to offer continuing education credit for preceptors who supervise AITs and to enhance the training and continuing education received by both AITs and administrators related to mental impairments, including, but not limited to dementia and Alzheimer’s.
